NBC Meet the Press Moderator died of a heart attack this afternoon. He was just 58 years old.
Update 6.15.08: Campbell Brown now at CNN remembers Tim Russert. Between MSNBC’s Friday coverage and this clip I now understand why NBC is doing such an expansive coverage of Russert’s death.
As far as the amount of coverage from NBC going overboard – maybe they are, maybe they aren’t. Maybe it’s just their way of dealing with it. Let them. There’s the remote and the 300 channels and the internets.
