A great journalist and all-around cool guy. God knows we need more of them. He will be missed.

Very sad too that this comes right before Father's Day. According to that news report on MSNBC, he had just gotten back from a family vacation with his wife and son (who just graduated college). Condolences to his family.

Someone pick me up off the floor
Tom Brokaw's announcement was very touching

Tim and the trusty white board
RIP Tim Russert

He was the best in the business. He had the respect of nearly everyone in politics.

I just hope they can find somebody to replace him on MTP who is half as good.

When I heard the news, I immediately thought of his family of course, but also Chuck Todd whom Russert had taken under his wing. Watching Chuck talking about Tim as a father figure on MSNBC was absolutely heartwrenching, but it showed how Tim reached out to people beyond their politics, and he cared about their families as much as his own. He was one of a kind.

He was the very best the media had to offer. It was a pleasure to listen and I'm sure he has influenced many future journalists.

Just read his last book "Wisdom of our Fathers." It was so touching. Meet The Press was a Sunday morning tradition in this house.

Godspeed

Devastating news. He was a true hero when it came to the search for finding truth in politics. I'll never forget him and that white board and the Gore/Bush election.

I know. It seems I saw him every day either on the Today Show, MSNBC and it wasn't Sunday without him on Meet The Press.
It's weird to feel so sad about someone I never met, but saw him nearly everyday.

Tom Brokaw's voice was quivering during this. They just showed it on CNN. I've been watching some TV and didn't see this. It's so sad.

I always found him likeable, no matter who he was interviewing. A rare thing indeed.
