RIP Tim Russert

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Pulitzer Wannabe, Jun 13, 2008.

  1. I know that there's a thread on "Sports and News," but thought the people who checked into the journalism board only need to see it, as well, considering his giant status in this business.

    Rather than have discussion going in two places at once ...

  5. Lord knows that thread is nothing without a "totally awesome" comment.
  6. OK. So where did your paper run it today?

    Ours ran it on the inside A section.

  8. It wasn't intended to start a discussion - just to alert people who come here first.

    Also - the New York Times had this below the fold!!!

    The story was 16 hours old by seven this morning. No one with a TV missed the Viking send-off.
  10. Um, dude, I posted it right at the height of the coverage the afternoon he died, because:

    1. Some people come to journalism topics first or exclusively.
    2. When a giant of journalism dies, it merits a mention on the journalism board.

    I don't understand why people have a problem with this.

    But then again, get a bunch of journalists in a room, and they're bound to start griping over nothing. It's our nature.

    I'm talking about the incredulity that the Times ran a way-old story below the fold.

    I couldn't give two shits about double-posting the item. Hell, it's a big story, post the fucking thing on all four boards if you have to.
  12. Ah, OK, gotcha.

    I just always thought the point of the NYT was to put order to the day before - for posterity's sake. Thus, I thought Russert deserved above-the-fold treatment.
