Stunner: Tim Russert, R-I-P

One of the most important figures in political news coverage, NBC news' Meet The Press moderator and Washington DC bureau chief Tim Russert has 'signed off' for the final time at the age of 58. He collapsed of an apparent heart attack at work this afternoon.

It really hits when friends in the media pass on... especially such preeminent masters of their craft.

Godspeed, Tim.

Very sad. We just watched and listened to Long Sack (Larry King) talk about him and pay tribute.

Poor Imus too. They were buds.

I agree. Very, very sad.

Realizing you've been one for years already, but just wanting to stop in and wish you a "NEW" happy father's day, Dave! Enjoy!
