There's no question in my mind that Tim Russert was a good man. As for his eternal destination, it's not mind to judge. But on this earth, he was a good newscaster, moderator and journalist. I didn't see his show every Sunday, in fact very few Sundays (I was usually at church). I did record some of the shows (when there was a special guest I wanted to hear) and I really liked his political comments.
But was he really worth all this attention? Was he better than Peter Jennings, another journalist who died recently? Was he better than any of the other recent deaths that have happened in this world?
Seems like there's been a little too much attention.
