Tim Russert Dies - What a Huge Loss

I can't believe Tim Russert died today. I don't want to believe it. He has graced our living rooms with stalwart, balanced, and pointed discussions for years. He came to Philadelphia in November to serve as the keynote speaker for the national PRSA conference. He was amazing, approachable and pointed. What a shame.

Tim Russert, 58, was recording voiceovers for Sunday's "Meet the Press" program when he suffered a heart attack. Howard Kurtz: The Democratic operative turned NBC commentator revolutionized Sunday morning television and infused journalism with his passion for politics. Tom Brokaw tells viewers: "This news division will not be the same without his strong, clear voice."
