Tim Russert passed suddenly today of an apparent heart attack. It’s a tragedy when considering what a hard working decent person he was and also because he is a good father. He was always fair as the moderator of meet the press, and he was respectful to his guests regardless of his opinion. He really was an objective journalist and he sincerely cared about the well being of the United States. He knew the hopes and dreams of American citizens extended beyond party lines and he was one of the rare journalists who could see the forest through the trees. It’s a sad day for American journalism and he will be missed by all. I don’t think words could express how stunned and saddened people were by his passing.
My sincerest condolences to his family. My heart goes out to you.
