Tim Russert is one of the few true journalists left. If you haven’t seen Meet the Press lately, check it out. He goes all out on every candidate that sits down at the table and brings up every topic directly that most journalists are too scared to ask about.
In his interview with Romney (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/10005061#10005061) he asks him about all of the times he’s flip-flopped and shows him taped footage
In his interview with Guiliani (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/10005061#22170363) he asks him about his girlfriend getting private security, his friend Bernie Kerik’s questionable behavior.
Even Sean Hannity says he wouldn’t go on Meet the Press and points out that Russert gets attacked by people both from the left and the right. Ironic because Crooks and Liars attacks him too. (http://www.crooksandliars.com/2007/06/15/hannitys-new-bff-is-tim-russert/)
