Remembering Tim Russert
If you are like me, and Meet the Press is the centerpiece of your Sunday morning talk show ritual, then you were probably just as stunned and saddened as I was to learn of Tim Russert’s sudden passing yesterday at age 58. I met him briefly in 1982, when I was a U.S. Senate intern, and he was an aide to legendary New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Russert gave a group of us interns an impromptu seminar on campaign advertising that I still remember to this day.
I have watched Meet the Press virtually every week for the past 17 years, and I can’t imagine what tomorrow morning will feel like without him sitting at that familiar roundtable. I can think of no better tribute to remember Tim Russert by than with his familiar sign-off, if it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Press.
