"Ride Lots"Eddy Merckx
Shit.Style criticism aside, the guy knew how to hold someone's toes to the fire. He'd call people out on their evasion attempts, and wouldn't let people get away with BS.
...cycle ninja-san...caught your comments at bsnyc/rtms & like you, i was floored to see the passing of tim russert......there are never that many talking heads in the u.s. media at any one time that really carry their own weight in a balanced manner...usually too many agendas & too much self glorification......i always felt like tim russert would be a 'neat' guy to personally talk w/ about the (any) issues...
Tim Russert had one trick and one trick only. He'd find an example of a guest holding a position on an issue in the past that was contrary to their present position. Then he'd confront the guest with it. Then...he had nothing.He wasn't a journalist, and his involvement in the Valerie Plame case was shameful.But you go ahead and imagine the guy was anything but a hack, if that makes you feel better.
