RIP Tim Russert

King Ing June 15, 2008 0

The world lost an American icon this past week with the passing of journalist Tim Russert. “Meet the Press” was not something I can say I watched every week, but when I happened to cross NBC the remote would suddenly stop. Sometimes we take our famous figures at face value, meaning we know them only for what they do and think of them only in that way. And my thought of Tim Russert was serious man with little to no sense of humor. That is why when I saw this video on TheBigLead starring Tim Russert, his son, and members of the Boston College basketball team (John Oates, Tyrese Rice, Sean Marshall, and Jared Dudley) I had to remind myself that there is always more than meets the eye. Russert was not only a journalist, he was someones husband, father, and friend.
