Russert honored on NewsJunk

We’ve used the background on the Twitter page for NewsJunk to dramatize the history of the news we’re so passionate about. We’ve run pictures of Teddy Roosevelt, the Kennedy-Nixon debate, and most recently the picture of Harry Truman holding the famous Dewey Beats Truman newspaper.

Today we switched the graphic to a dramatic headshot of newsman Tim Russert who died suddeny today. We’d like to say we knew him personally, but we didn’t. However we are students of his work, and his death today was historic, a passing of a political power in the middle of a Presidential campaign.
