    Tim was a decent person and always was a super moderator on Meet the Press. He added creditability to any broadcast in which he participated.

    Sorry but his Democratic background and leanings showed a little to often for me. His death was to early in life and a shame, leave it at that.

    I am a Canadian and an ardent follower of US politics and the way they are reported. I respected the way Tim Russert went about his business. He was a professional in every way. Far above most of the hacks on TV. Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    I watch Fox news most of the time, but nearly always caught Meet the Press (barring trapshoot Sunday's). My Dad was way to the right of Rush Limbaugh AND George Bush and we used to watch it together. I don't mind if people hold different views than I do. Just don't want them to try and stuff them down my throat. Of all of the newscasters out there, I thought Mr. Russert was one of the most objective and credible. He asked hard questions, not only of conservatives, but of liberals, too. Aside from his politics, he was very likable, not a smartass like many on tv. He had great credibility and didn't try to "spin" things. I'll miss Meet the Press and Tim Russert on election nights with his famous "white board".

    Tim was one of the few moderators who really wanted to hear and air both sides and it showed ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bigdon,

    I agree most whole-heartedly. The real treasures as news guys are Chris Wallace and Tony Snow. Also, George Will takes a back seat to no one.

    One point - it amazes me that Chris Wallace could have become the person he is having the father he does. Mike Wallace was never the objective reporter or interviewer his son is.
