a skeptical eye on pop culture and public discourse
Tim Russert R.I.P.
Tim Russert, best known for his work on Meet the Press, died suddenly today from an apparent heart attack.
I was a big fan of Mr. Russert's, and a lot of my early political education was a result of watching Meet the Press on Sunday mornings as a teen. He never let someone get away with refusing to answer a question, and he never acted in a partisan manner during his relentless questioning. American political journalism won't be the same without him.
