Survivor rips ‘Meet the Press’

The gutsy dancer who lost part of her left leg in the marathon bombings accused “Meet the Press” late yesterday of being “dishonorable” for naming the accused terrorists during a local taping of the Sunday show after she was led to believe they wouldn’t.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis — one of the first survivors of the Boylston Street blasts to go public last year when she vowed “I’ll dance again” Boston Marathon Victim Hasletin a front-page Herald story — said she was in tears when she walked out on the taping of tomorrow’s “Meet the Press” at the Hyatt Boston Harbor hotel.

“Your decision to back out on that promise you made and the horrific way you brought that decision to my attention just minutes prior to taping was not only a cowardice move but a dishonorable one as well,” Haslet-Davis posted on her website, adriannehaslet-davis.com about the names being used.

 

(Herald columnist Adriana Cohen was in high dudgeon as well, but that’s her default position.)

Here’s the letter:

More, clearly, to come.
