Tim Russert, NBC journalist and political heavyweight host of "Meet the Press," has died after collapsing at NBC's Washington news bureau, a source said. He was 58 years old.
Wow, what a loss....
Was this Arkancide? Remember it was Russert who personally derailed Hillary’s Oval Office Express with his super-tough interrogation of Clinton about her position on the Spitzer drivers license policy. I saw a graph somewhere that showed a total collapse in her polls from that very date. HRC does have a lot of time on her hands now.
Scary....he was not that overweight.
Tragic news....just unbelievable. Truly inconceivable.....will miss him.
Really? I didn’t know that. Thanks for the trivia bit. When did he fill in - was it recent?
Although I couldn’t agree with his politics; he seemed like a kind and decent man who will be missed by all. One never knows when the “Big Guy” calls us home. May he rest in peace.

Amen, Sister Faith; Praying your Prayer with you. God Bless and Comfort his Family and Friends.
What horrible news. Well, he was doing what he loved to do up until the end.
Rest in peace, Tim.
Russert was chief of staff to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynahan, a true gentleman democrat and stalwart of integrity and honor.
Pulmonary Embolism from flying?
So did I, but it didn't make me mean. Russert was a good family man and will be missed.
Don’t care. I have heard him talk. That was enough for me. End of subject.
- FOX NEWS-1:45- 2:00 this afternoon he was at work- he collapsed, said he couldn’t breathe, and then apparently died.
- NYT’s blog: Luke and Maureen were still in Italy (on their way home now)when this happened.
Tim’s wife and son were still in Italy when he died. I can’t imagine their flight home. Prayers out to them, and Big Russ.
Then I leave it to you to kiss and be pals with all the leftists, marxists, communists and Islumic terrorists. Have at it.
Why don't you wait till he's buried before you start up this crap.
Did you do that? Well done.
So what makes you think Russert was a Communist?
Wasn't Russert the first to poke through Hillary's cloak of invincibility with his tough, persistent questions on driver's licenses for illegals very early on in the primary debates?
.... hhmmm ....
I had the same thought. DVT(thrombosis) with massive Pulmonary Embolus could be the cause if no prior health issues existed, especially in light of the recent long plane flight.
