RIP Tim Russert

>> Saturday

We here at the YCS family would like to give our condolences to the the Russert family and their friends. The shocking passing of Tim Russert today has dealt a major blow to the journalism industry, one it can struggle to afford in today's world.

On a personal note, I had only recently begun to seriously watch Meet the Press because of the closely contested Democratic primaries. However, in that time I had grown to incredibly enjoy Russert's work in moderating the show and the fresh perspective he brought to a realm that will always need it. His story about the relationship with his father has become well known over the years, and one that should be a model to many people with Father's Day approaching on Sunday. As someone who now pays closer attention than ever to politics and enjoys hearing different perspectives on the field, I will greatly miss seeing Russert ask the tough questions and provide an honest perspective about an often times dishonest world.

What journalism lost yesterday was probably one of its best mediators. Russert was the one person who never seemed to buy into that Liberal Media/CNN/Keith Oberman/Dan Rather vs. Fox News/Rupert Murdoch/Bill O'Reilly red-vs-blue shrill, yelling, partisan media clusterfuck.

Russert was everything a journalist should be. He was tough, but fair. He will be missed.

He's dead to me.

Amen to that Zuch, Russert was a king among men. Also, an avid Buffalo Bills fan.

It's taking all my restraint here to not make a "he's finally out of his misery" joke.
