WASHINGTON - Tim Russert, host of NBC's "Meet the Press" and its Washington bureau chief collapsed and died at work Friday after suffering an apparent heart attack. He was 58

Russert, of Buffalo, N.Y., took the helm of the Sunday news show in December 1991 and turned it into the most widely watched program of its type in the nation. His signature trait there was an unrelenting style of questioning, sparing none of the politicians, business giants and even sports figures who appeared on his show.

Washingtonian magazine once dubbed Russert the best journalist in town, and described "Meet the Press" as "the most interesting and important hour on television.

He also wrote best-selling books, "Big Russ and Me," in 2004, and "Wisdom of our Fathers," in 2006.

This year, Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Russert also was a senior vice president at NBC

edit: dammit! I check another browser tab and somebody beats me too it... w/video no less.....


anybody remember Clintons campaign manager on Meet the Press 3 weeks ago using Russerts father as an example of people in heaven who want the Democratic primary to keep going? "Big Russ looking down from heaven..."

"funny" part is, well Big Russ is still alive, and now Little Tim is as dead as dead can be.

And Tim had health insurance and a cushy job while dad worked in blue collar irish catholic-ville.. WTF?

See, I thought so too.

as I side note, I remember watching that Meet the Press and I would bet real money that Terry was coked out of his mind that morning. He was sweating, talking a mile a minute, and the apocalypse couldn't have knocked him off the talking points.
