Just heard that too and I was watching him the other day, too. Really a shocker. Very sorry for his family

It's a terrible day for journalism... he was one of the good guys. Few people had more integrity or heart than Tim Russert. Andrea Mitchell almost broke down on camera a few minutes ago talking about him... it's heartbreaking.Daniel M. Clark

It is impossible for any journalist to be 100% objective, but Tim Russert came as close as any in doing so.
A great man.This World is Not My Home

One of the ones I watched all the time. No matter what side of the isle you are on. He was very fair in his reporting and the information and politics he talked about.
Will be mised indeed.

I was out all day, and could not believe it when I turned on the news in the car and heard.
All the above comments are right on - he was the finest political journalist working today, dedicated to providing information, insight, and analysis without takng sides. A true professional, his good heart and strong character were evident in everything he did on the air and in his writings.
He is irreplaceable.
Tom Brokaw will host Meet the Press this week, doing a tribute to Tim.

I saw the crawl across the tv and thought I had mis-read it. Seemed far to young.
I would watch Meet The Press on the few Sundays I have free. It was one of the few Sunday morning shows that tried to give both sides a fair chance. When I missed an episode I would stay up for the repeat around here at 2am on Monday morning, I enjoyed his style that much.
It's going to be a tough election night without him sitting at the desk with that little white board explaining the vote counts. That little white board that you would see him writing on and wiping off was more effective in understanding what was happening than all the high tech the networks pull out that night. I think he knew that people wanted all tis election stuff to be easier to understand and he made it so.
If it's Sunday, it's Meet The Press. But it won't seem like Meet The Press without Tim.Someday starts today
