Tim Russert passed away suddenly today and the news greatly saddens me. I love Tim Russert. He was, by far, my favorite journalist and much of the reason MSNBC is my preferred new channel. It was a rare Sunday that I missed Meet the Press – until the podcast came out, I would literally schedule my Sunday mornings around it. He was a great moderator – always asking the necessary questions and never settling for the non-answer answer. He also seemed like a good person – a nice Irish-Catholic family man with a love of politics. How could you not love that? I will miss him very much. Sunday mornings will never be the same.
