      I really looked forward to Meet the Press and I admired Tim Russert. But I have to admit this year during one of the debates in which he took part that I lost some respect for him when he practiced a form of "gotcha" journalism.

      I have been a journalist. I was taught to show up, do the interviews and learn the story.

      Today, all too sadly, journlists show up with their story in mind and all they want those being interviwed to do is agree with their story, not learn about yours.

      Today, journalists want to be the news and the story.

      Pa-thetic.

        Gregarious political/ media insider and loyal friend: no question!
        "Towering journalistic figure:" never saw him that way.
        Sorry the big guy's gone.

          Better than most on network and also cable (the latter includes some really terrible newscasters/interviewers). Russert was one of the better ones and will be missed from that point of view at least. BTW, I gather he had a fairly complete health check up just before this. What gives? Are we all due for angioplasty exams., and or dye type of heart checks in the near future?

              Interesting piece on how and when the news was broken. Wiki had it before NBC announced it. The person responsible for that may have lost his/her job because of it.
