As most of you know, MSNBC’s Tim Russert, the host of Meet the Press passed away earlier today. He collapsed from a heart attack while at work.
Russert was a great reporter, who didn’t focus on partisanship, but focused on getting the facts. Meet the Press was a difficult show for many politicians to go on, because of Russert’s commitment to finding the truth. He didn’t make it an easy interview for anybody.
On this Father’s Day weekend, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He will be missed by all, but it must be especially difficult for his family.
I will leave you with a video, and Russert’s famous words: “That’s all for today. We’ll be back next week. If it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press.”
Rest in peace Tim.
