Default Russert

Amid all the deaths mentioned on the nightly news, why to we select ones such as Russert's, over which to get all gushy and condolence-extending? Why not report it just as one would any other death?

Tim Russert is dead at 58. We extend our sympathies to his family, friends, and fans. Russert never appeared on BhTV, but his stature and influence made him a frequent topic of discussion here. Admittedly, when we talked about him, it was sometimes to criticize him (as in this recent chat between Matthew Yglesias and Jane Hamsher), but he had his fervent defenders, too, such as Conn Carroll (vs. Matt Stoller). He certainly died too soon.
