    I was reading (this morning) the forum topic about the death of Tim Russert.
    Reading your comments actually sorta brought a smile to my face because it made me see there truly is some depth and intelligence here @ RJ.
    I never spent much time (in my head) thinking about it, but now that he's gone, I've realized Mr. Russert was probably the only "television" journalist I'd trust when it came to politics...I never once felt that urge to think "Oh, he's so partisan".
    So now that he's gone, who will I turn to?
    I can't think of anyone.icon_eek.gif
    How bout you? Where will you seek information that hasn't been fed through the machine?

    Seriously though, I listen to NPR -- it's news for actual adults.

    Haha...



    Since I'm not an ambiturner...I guess I'll just keep turning right.



    I'm always a Democracy Now! fan. They actually (this is crazy) will come out and say when they were wrong or new info came about that made them report news that was not true.

    Keith Olbermann. He is who I turned to (on MSNBC) upon hearing the news of Russert's death.

    But Russert is truly irreplaceable.

    Yeah, I like Olbermann too, though it's hard to think of him as "neutral"....the man has quite the opinion(s).icon_biggrin.gif

    "Meet the Press" was very depressing yesterday...though well done...icon_neutral.gif

    There is no replacement for Tim Russert. They might as well come up with a different show. I hope this doesn't make GE stock drop, it's my favorite Blue Chip.
