Thoughts About Tim Russert

This is such a sad day. Meet The Press journalist, Tim Russert, has died. This is not a qualified essay. I've never met the man. Like millions of political junkies all across the country, I watched Meet the Press and the Tim Russert Show on CNBC every chance I had.

Russert had a common man's approach to delivering political news. His analysis was almost always right on the money, and his ability to decode the inside the beltway encryptions on things and them deliver them in such a way that everyone could relate was unique.

Tim Russert was a journalist who will be missed. Meet the Press will never be the same. Watching the political conventions on television will never be the same.
