Tim Russert of NBC News has died of an apparent heart attack.
I just heard about that, he was a great man and so young.
Much too young and so sudden. Never know how many days you have on this earth, do you?
It's wierd because I usually watch him with my Dad every week.
I was going to post the news earlier, but to be honest I have been too upset. No celebrity/news person/politician passing has had this effect on me. I feel like I grew up with him and Sunday mornings and election nights will never be the same...RIP.
One of the better journalists out there, for sure. And far too young--his son had just graduated college. Awful.
How Awful! I have always looked forward to his segments on the Today show! Elections just won't be the same.
He seemed to be quite the family man and a real down to earth guy...so sad.
I watched him on everything. Morning Joe, elections, Sundays. CNBC. It feels like you've lost a member of your family almost. So young!!
This is from MSNBC.

WASHINGTON - Tim Russert, NBC News Washington bureau chief and the moderator of Meet the Press, died Friday after suffering a heart attack at the bureau. He was 58.
Russert was recording voiceovers for Sundays Meet the Press broadcast when he collapsed. He was rushed to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, where resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful.
Russerts physician, Michael Newman, said cholesterol plaque ruptured in an artery, causing sudden coronary thrombosis.
Russert had earlier been diagnosed with asymptomatic coronary artery disease, but it was well-controlled with medication and exercise, and he had performed well on a stress test in late April, Newman said. An autopsy revealed that he also had an enlarged heart, Newman said.
