Tim Russert: A Fox In Nipper’s Clothing

Last summer the Nevada Democrats pulled out of a debate sponsored by Fox News.  Loaded, racist and all the rest, the Dems decided it was incoherent for them to pretend Fox was a media outlet like any other.

Tim Russert is worse, because he has the mantle of the venerable NBC, network of Nipper, the radio dog. Bulletin to Democrats: Just Say No to Russert. 

See my piece at the Guardian.

And the host of others collected at Tennessee Guerilla Women:

Paul Waldman: Tim Russert: Stop the InanityJane Hamsher: Thanks But I Think I'll Skip the Pile-OnTaylor Marsh: Russert Leads The Boys in All Out Clinton AssaultHoward Kurtz: Ganging UpEzra Klein: RussertDebatableland: Tim Russert is Hurting America Too 

Oh, and for you Obama and Edwards supporters, remember the story about the man who didn’t stand up to the Nazis when they came for his neighbors.
