OK! We get it. Tim Russert died unexpectedly and he was the finest guy in America. OK! Enough.
I haven't seen coverage like this since Kennedy was assasinated. WTF is up with MSNBC, CNN and HNN? They've been hashing over Tim Russert's life pretty much continuously for the past 24 hours.
What kind of self serving and self congratulatory media BS is this? Tim Russert pitched softballs to most of his interviewees. He let the Bushies come on Meet the Press and talk the American public into going to war on lies and fabricated evidence. I and many others I knew realized at the time it was all bullshit. If Tim Russert were such a brilliant journalist and politically savy genius, why the fuck didn't he call them on their bullshit.
Nope, the main stream media is just using Russert to make a hero out of one of their own to cover up their own ineptitude and lack of good investigative journalism.
