"Russert: At the Feet of the Powerful and Throat of the Weak"

Read Fred Branfman's Huffington Post piece on Russert. Money quote: "Russert's treatment of candidates like Howard Dean contrasts dramatically with the obsequious treatment given those in power. A Cheney or Rumsfeld may be shown a film clip of one of their many lies, and asked to explain. They are then given as much time as they want to expand, amplify and embellish their lies, without interruption, whereupon Russert goes on to another topic. A Dean, however, is pummelled mercilessly."

And of course, we're still waiting for Russert to explain his offensive interview with Barack Obama....

I still think Pumpkinhead should be tarred and feathered!

"In the end, it is Tim Russert's support for those in power, not out of conviction but simple blind ambition, which represents his deepest failing as a human being and journalist. The problem is not that he is too conservative or too liberal, but that he has no real convictions other than a desire to keep a plum job."

We need to protest the US Government and its Corporate Media outside the US Capitol and their glass houses, 24/7 LIVE for as long as it takes until we restore some balance to our republic?

Okay, well, it's time to hand out a carrot.

I thought Mr. Russert did very well at holding Bill Frist accountable this morning.

There's hope for you yet, Russert. Now, why don't you come clean about your role in the Plame investigation?
