‘Meet the Press’ regulars recall ‘Mr. Aly,’ the show’s butler

Washington Post
For years, Saadalla Mohamed Aly poured orange juice and served salmon to the “Meet the Press” pundits. “Aly made guests feel like you were at a royal castle in England somewhere,” says Al Sharpton. “By the second or third time you did the show, you’d look forward to him, he was part of the ‘Meet the Press’ experience.” The show’s butler died last month at 79 after contracting pneumonia.

    Is there anyone else that sees something wrong with the picture of a news program having a butler? No wonder both the Washington press and politicians are so disconnected from the average American.
