Breaking News: Tim Russert Dies of Apparent Heart Attack

I love Meet the Press. I know it’s nerdy, but I don’t care. Sunday mornings were all about pancakes and Meet The Press.

Sadly, this probably won’t be the case anymore. It’s being reported on the New York Post online that Tim Russert died this afternoon from an apparent heart attack. The 58-year-old anchor of Meet the Press was badass — if not always seemingly a little bugged out — and is responsible for making a lot of political pundits squirm in their seats and stutter like little girls.

According to The Post:

“Tim Russert, NBC journalist and political heavyweight host of “Meet the Press,” has died after collapsing at NBC’s Washington news bureau, a source said…

Russert joined NBC News in 1984. In April 1985, he supervised the live broadcasts of the Today program from Rome, negotiating and arranging an appearance by Pope John Paul II – a first for American television. In 1986 and 1987 Russert led NBC News weeklong broadcasts from South America, Australia and China.

In 2008, Time Magazine named him one of the world’s 100 most influential people.”

Dude, you and your challenging political questions will be missed. Especially in my apartment. On Sundays.
