BTC: A necessary word on Tim Russert


 

(Updated with video of classic Russert.)

For sure, his stature as a journalist and human being will be explained at length by admirers, colleagues and friends in the days that follow. For now, as pointed out by the folks at Huffington Post, note that in his final moments he was imploring reporters and analysts to cover the political process with responsibility and due care.

BTC: A necessary word on Tim Russert

  1. I’m still stunned. I can’t fanthom a US presidential campaign w/o Russert. I just can’t.

  2. This is pretty sad news for me. Most of my Sunday mornings for the past few years have been spent watching Russert on Meet the Press. I always enjoyed the tenacity with which he grilled candidates and other political figures, as well as the discussion panels he assembled to talk about the issues.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family. He will no doubt be missed.

  3. I also am saddened at this news as I too will not be able to watch Meet The Press without missing him as well. He always seemed to be in a good mood and enjoyed himself. Very sad!

  4. Sad indeed. An example for all journalists to follow, especially in Canada.

    Sunday morning was always – my coffee and watching Tim Russert – what a void he will leave.

  5. Tim Russert was like a “BIG BROTHER” that we all would love to have.
    I will miss him.

  6. “he was imploring reporters and analysts to cover the political process with responsibility and due care”

    I’m sure Olbermann will be a changed man going forward. Unfortunately, I’m too cheap to pay for the cable package that would permit me to find out.

  7. “he was imploring reporters and analysts to cover the political process with responsibility and due care” – so when are the good folks in the Paliamentary Press Gallery going to pay attention. Probably not.
