Tim Russert: In Memoriam

timrussert061308me
One of my favorite political commentators, NBC's Tim Russert, died yesterday of a sudden heart attack. He was just 58 years old. He was a rare kind of broadcast journalist, down-to-earth, unpretentious but persistent and inquisitive with the subjects of his interviews. He's going to be missed. Rest in peace. (Obituary)

Uno de mis comentaristas políticos favoritos, Tim Russert, de la NBC, falleció ayer de un ataque al corazón. Tenía tan sólo 58 años. Era un periodista de televisión de los que hay pocos, con los pies en el suelo, humilde pero tenaz y persistente con los sujetos de sus entrevistas. Se le va a echar de menos. Descanse en paz. (Obituario)

  1. This was so sad and unexpected. Tim Russert seemed to be a genuinely good guy who loved life and his work.

    Nice drawing-it captures him "in action."
