Television journalist Tim Russert was born on this day in 1950. For more than 16 years he served as moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press. Russert served as a senior vice president at NBC News, was the Washington bureau chief and was a frequent correspondent and guest on The Today Show and Hardball.
On June 13, 2008, Russert collapsed with a heart attack at the NBC offices in Washington. He was 58.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
