I guess I would rather see the ad honmine attacks then read the hypocritical, hysteric hype about a guy who's whole career will be nothing but a minor footnote in history

Russert death is a prime example of everything wrong with American Political media. The American political media tends to defies and exaggerates the importance of minor insignificant bit players and results in a “journalistic” community that confuses its own ego for the story.

Russert’s death is no more significant or important then the 10s of thousands of other people who died that day.

Yes, the "journalists" have made themselves the story.

A man who can ask questions is not a hero - he's just a man.

I was thinking the same thing about the obituaries I read in the local small town paper this weekend — these were about people no less significant than a shyster lawyer passing as an “unbiased” political hack.

It also belies this preposterous myth that the actors on Big Media are competitors. Schieffer said an, unintentionally, funny thing. He said how much he loved to scoop Russert because he was the best then told us that he shared a box with him at the Senator's stadium. They are not competitors, they are collaborators. They all spout exactly the same nonsense at the same times.
