Can We Talk?

I did not know Tim Russert, and neither did you. For all we know he was a decent guy and father.

With all the canonizing surrounding his death let's make sure that this does not get lost.

JOHNSON (11/1/01): NBC Meet the Press host Tim Russert says that covering the war on terrorism is not like covering politics, a presidential impeachment or a missing intern.

"In times of war, the media should lower our voices, modulate our tone. Yes, we are journalists, but we are also Americans," Russert said in a speech Friday to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
