But as Bill has said before, Russert cannot be differentiated from NBC. No need to listen or watch Bill today. One need go no further than this journalistic gem below from last month to discover what Bill really thinks of Russert and his credibility.
Amongst some of the best praise from Bill towards Tim...
"He went into the tank for Obama."
"Don't give me any of this, Russert's a blessed guy."
"Russert's playing the (left-wing) game over (at NBC), taking his big pay check, so don't give me he's a noble guy. He's not."
"If you're working for NBC, you're part of (their dishonesty)."
This should remain forever as the public's reality check on any homage Bill attempts to pay.
Award-winning, TV writer, Steve Young, is the author of "Great Failures of the Extremely Successful" (www.greatfailure.com) and his weekly column truly does end up every Sunday in the same LA Daily News OPEDs as Bill's.
