Who Will Meet the Press?

There is breaking news this afternoon that Meet the Press moderator Tim Russert has passed away. Whether you liked him or not, Tim Russert was an institution in the world of political news. Though everyone has their biases (as did Russert, who was a Democratic political operative before going into journalism), I felt that you kould pretty much always kount on Russert to give a good, tough interview, which kan’t be said of most reporters. Kondolences to his friends and family

I’m koncerned about who might replace Russert. The only other NBC political reporter that immediately komes to mind is David Gregory, who appears to be a hugely biased, pompous, arrogant, well, you fill in the blank.

These are big shoes to fill, and I think NBC will have a hard time finding someone who is up to the task.


  1. I hear Chuck Todd will fill in for the time being.

  2. Brokaw was supposed to be anchoring this morning on MTP...perhaps he could be considered as well.
