I don't know Tim Russert.
I don't feel like he's part of my family.
I don't feel like we're friends.
He was an anchor, a pundit, who was present in my life because I like how he deals with politics and current events. I found Meet the Press immensely satisfying. I trusted Tim Russert. I loved listening to him and watching him on television. And I will miss that experience immensely.
In an age of so much deception...so much bias and partisanship...it really boils down to who you trust. I trusted Tim Russert. I just did.
I don't think this is the end of an era.
But it's sad. I'm sad.
And I wonder...what happens now?
