Wow: Tim Russert Dead


Just heard Sean Hannity say "I'm hearing some awful news in the in the industry that I'm trying to confirm." Checked over on Drudge and there's a link to the New York Post that had a one sentence story about this.

It's amazing how fast Wikipedia is updated when someone dies.

Sad. I kinda liked ol' Tim.

He was actually an objective reporter in the otherwise liberal media.

Sad news. I'll miss him.

I enjoyed his interviews with various politicians on Meet The Press and he always was very pointed with his qustions to them, regardless of which party they were from. Good man in his private life too and he'll be missed.

It seems more likely he died from a REAL heart attack, not an apparent one.

People are still making a big deal over the obams fist bump. Would they have rather seen them bump uglies?

Haven't ever quite understood why you would listen to Sean Hannity. 'Cause it feels so good when you quit?

Dying at such a young age makes most of us wonder when our time is up. It may be sooner than later. His was sooner.

Russert seemed like a person of depth - more than just superficial.

He will truly be missed. He had a way of looking into the camera that was honest and believable.

You people must be mean and young. You have never lost a loved one. God help all of you when you lose your parents or a child or close friend. You need years on your side to understand.

Hannity can be downright annoying sometimes spewing truth and facts about Obama ;etal,,who would assume command of our country...Folks had better start paying real careful attention to the truth, or we may be in for changes we're not prepared for.....Americans better wake up before it's too late..

Sad news indeed. MTP is a Sunday morning staple for me. I wonder who will be the new host?

Tim Russert was pretty much fair and balanced. In the Right-Wing World, anything really fair and balanced is "LIBERAL" media. To the Right-Wing Nut Division of the Republican Party Of Conservative Nutjob KoolAid Snorters (The Righters just don't drink the Kool-Aid, They tear open the top and "SNORT" straight from the pack. If it is not 90% slanted to the Right Wing NutJob toe the Line O thinking, It is Liberal. Russert was fair, but probably voted PUGGIE. Hewitt talked about plan A and B, what it looked like to me watching "Meet The Press" Russert was easy question for Puggo's, harder questions for Demo's.

Hannity is a more consistant truthteller than most pundants on any of the news..especially those sorry-assed bush haters on cnn,msnbc,nbc,abc,cbs,pbs..I could easily name these aholes but everyone already knows who these basTURDS are.

Mr. Jarhead, you are only about 20 years from that age. Death by natural causes can strike Marines as well as civilians. Even Marines and Ex-Marines in their late thirties. Live right with God, and don't keep buying into the Right-Wing PooPla Crap that seems to have been BrainWashed (McCain at Hannible Hilton)into the Military Crowd. But of course, you will still stay programmed as a Right-Winger, we would be disappointed really if you had your own thoughts. This is something you cannot help. Bless you for your service to USA.

My husband is a physician and told me that he probably died from an embolism seeing as that he had just returned from Italy the night before. Traveling long distances in an airplane makes one prone to them if there's not alot of moving around. If there's an autopsy, it might show that.

I love it...most comment on how they "liked" old Tim, because he was an independent in the "liberal" media. Well, hate to pop your bubble but, as are most intelligent and reasonable media people, he had a history of working with the Democrat governor of NY, Cuomo, and the Democrat senator, Moynihan. He came from a Democrat background but still demonstrated independence when doing his job.

I believe NBC plans to have his body lying in state for at least the next week or two,,,as long as ratings are good!!thanks Tim you really came thru when we needed you....all of us at GE,NBC,MSNBC,CNBC..

Anonymous said...

The closest thing I saw to "independent" was someone referring to Russert as "objective".
"Most intelligent and reasonable media people" worked for Cuomo and Moynihan? Should the joke be what an incredible turnover they must have had or what tiny staffs?
Anyone who know anything about political media in the US knows Russerts political background-especially if they were fans of his show.

come on BG...no shout out to fathers everywhere?!?

Back to the fact that if a commentator is not 90% slanted to the right, the commentator is "Liberal" and the Conservative Wusses cannot understand anything else. Conservative Wussy, now that has a nice, true, ring to it. Cause that is how the Wing Folds. No news or commentator can be fair and balanced in the eyes of Right Wing Conservative Wusses if it really is. Fuque Faux. And all you FauxSucqueers. Ha ha.

Russert was certainly respected by many people.

A pic of James Carville, Democratic strategist and his Republican strategist wife, Mary appeared in the ST today. They were shown crying during a taping of MEET THE PRESS in memory of Tim Russert.

Boy, bet the dinner conversation around the Carville house is interesting.
