Tim Russert Dead at 58

I've written hundreds of posts critiquing journalism, but have never had anything but respect for Tim Russerts' professionalism. He was what a journalist should be, and he will be missed.

Go with God, Mr. Russert.

Among the non-Fox media, Russert was the most... well... fair and balanced. He never tossed softballs at politicians and he always insisted on answers, bearing down if a politician acted squirrely.

For that reason alone, he will be missed, but listening to Hannity today and hearing the stories those who knew him told, I am sure he will be missed all the more by those whose lives he touched.

Godspeed, sir.

Bearing false witness against Scooter Libby is something I cannot forgive Russert of.

Is there anyone out there now who will question democrats? Even though Russert rarely asked any follow up questions at least he asked the question in the first place.
