Holy crap.

Tim Russert is dead. Meet the Press will never be the same. :( He was only 58! It's on all the major cable news, but NBC itself is showing stupid golf. Election coverage in November is going to be rather dull without him...

You Tube already has a bunch of clips...it's really hard to watch Tom Brokaw make the announcement.

NBC did report it--they just only lasted 5 minutes on it, and then went back to golf. They pulled Tom Brokaw out of retirement to break the news, and he was crying a bit.

I heard it on NPR and felt my heart drop. Only 58, but gosh, he'd always been there since I started following politics. I'm still shaking my head. :^(
