NBC's Meet The Press this morning remembered Tim Russert. NBC has posted the program on their website. I was fortunate enough to be able to take the time this Father's Day to not only watch the program, but to do so with my own father. The panel this morning was made up of Tom Brokaw, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Maria Shriver, Gwen Ifill, James Carville, Mary Matalin, Betsy Fischer, and Mike Barnicle. Tom Brokaw set the tone saying that it was going to be a celebration of Russert's life, but understandably there were difficult moments.
The other Sunday morning talk shows added their own tributes. Below is a clip from CNN's Late Edition as Wolf Blitzer opened the program:
There was another passing this week, this one at CNN. Bob Coleman was an executive producer for CNN. At the end of Sunday morning's CNN Newsroom, T.J. Holmes and Betty Nguyen paid tribute to him.
