I only really have one source of political news that I trusted.. and that was Tim Russert. I’m so saddened by his passing. From his weekly Meet the Press show where we got to watch him grill politicians and others with questions no one else seemed to be asking, to his daily appearances on the Today show – I always looked to Tim for the “True” perspective of things.
I didn’t really trust anyone else because Tim always seemed to boil it down and provide the big picture in all his assessments. And, he was excited about the process of elections and it made me excited too. I record the Today show, mostly so when I come home rather than watching the current line-up of pathetic newscasters – I could catch up with just a few-minute segment with Tim instead.
This is such a great loss – and really – at this point – I don’t know where I’ll get the straight scoop anymore.
