Tim Russert's death leaves void at the cross-section of politics and media

Tim Russert's death today is a big shock and a big loss. A decent, smart interviewer, his was a steady, tempered voice at a time when too many deliver shrill, partisan analysis. Russert was credible.

The media and political worlds were better for him.

His death today leaves a significant void.
