His family has my condolences.
Yeah it was a bummer. I didn't agree with a lot of his political views, but, I defy anyone to find a more objective ethical journalist. You won't find one.
I did TV productions in high school. So I have to at least give props to Tim.
However I left the field by the end of high school because I wasn't cut out for all the conniving backstabbing scum. You work 4 years to becoming director learning all the things about leadership, then some kiss @$$ charms his way ahead of you. Nobody listened to him, because he didn't have anybody's respect either. So he was just some retorting grumpy punk.
As far as Russert, he kept all the minions in place and asked all the tough questions that needed to be asked. Iron nosed. I respect that and I will miss that aspect of his journalism.
