If true, this is a tragedy. Not only was Tim Russert as sincerely decent man, he was the only Sunday news talking head who ever asked tough questions of a Democrat. Somehow I fear that NBC will promote one of these two idiots.
Update: The New York Times has a breaking news banner with no link confirming that Russert is dead, although, I can't honestly say that the New York Times adds any credibility.
Confirmed by NBC.
