    It’s really pretty sad. This was the last major guy on MSM I could point to whenever I was asked if there was anyone who even attempted to be fair. In fact he made it a point that he felt news was possibly slanting left and he would do his best to be impartial. Not bad for a former Carter aid. He will definitely be missed.

    I saw this on Hannity today, I want to pass along that if you have not read his book “Big Russ and Me” you need to. The follow up book “Wisdom of Our Fathers” makes a great Fathers day gift. Either way read both of them, he is was good guy who asked tough questions to all.

  • Jason Williams

    I liked Tim because there were many times a politicians tried to pass on a tough question with a fluff answer and Tim would always graciously divert back to the central point.

    I agree with Rupert twice today.

  • John Fairplay

    I think Tim would like it that one of the last major national stories involving him was the complaining that he was too tough during the debates in the Presidential primaries. I regret losing him, especially given his growth as an interviewer and that he had at least a couple of decades left in the business.

    He was too tough an interviewer for today’s sudsy brained idiots. Butt hay, at least he’s dead.

    p.s. Socialism is easier than capitalism.

    I think Fair is a really good word to describe my feelings about Tim Russert! I enjoyed watching Meet the Press Sunday mornings because he brought a lot of fascinating dialect and information to the program and I learned a lot. It won’t be the same without him in my opinion.
