TIM RUSSERT, A HERO OF JOURNALISM

TIM RUSSERT (1950-2008)
(June 13)- NBC news Washington bureau chief and moderator of "Meet the Press" dies of a tragic heart attack. Russert, 58, was an Emmy-winning journalist seen as a leader of the news community. Russert spoke at the 25th anniversary Red Smith Lecture on April 14 at the University of Notre Dame, where I was lucky enough to see him. He left us with a message about honor and responsibility in journalism and politics. Russert will always be known as a master of interviews and a person of integrity. May our thoughts and prayers be with his family on this day.
