RIP Tim Russert

Died of a heart attack today. Only 58.

Very sad. I used to see this guy all the time in DC, mainly at Wizards games. Great guy. They don't make 'em like Russert and Bob Schieffer anymore. Sunday mornings won't be the same.

Re: RIP Tim Russert

Whether you agreed with his methods or not, he was a straight shooter and no fluff and spin.

Re: RIP Tim Russert

I was watching MSNBC when the news broke, and Tom Brokaw was getting pretty choked up. They all are. David Gregory, Brian Williams, Andrea Mitchell... all visibly shaken. His office on Nebraska Avenue is only about a mile and half from the house where I grew up. Like Russert, I'm a Jesuit educated Catholic sports nut with roots in upstate New York, and for those reasons I've always found it very easy to relate to him. I have so much respect for his journalism and all who he was a man. This is really ashame.

Re: RIP Tim Russert

I work near Sibley and drove past the NBC studio on my way home. It was surrounded by reporters, but I had no idea why.

Re: RIP Tim Russert

may god bless his family. don't know if this is appropriate, but when did the reporters start becoming the news? its probably the single biggest reason there are so many inaccuracies in news today. everyone wants to break a story, without checking out facts, and sources.
