Tim Russert Dead at 58

NBC’s Tim Russert dead at 58
Tim Russert, NBC News’ Washington bureau chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” died Friday after being stricken at the bureau, NBC News said Friday. He was 58.

Russert was recording voiceovers for Sunday’s “Meet the Press” broadcast when he collapsed, the network said. He had recently returned from Italy, where his family was celebrating the graduation of Russert’s son, Luke, from Boston College.

No further details were immediately available.

I turned my TV to MSNBC to check the news, and this is what I saw. This is... unbelievable. I've been watching Russert over the course of the primary season, and for this to happen, and so suddenly, is just a shock.

I'm not sure what to say.
