This is a year to really THINK. And to have REAL conversations.
How often we rally 'round the latest gossip of the day instead of
allowing ourselved to fully participate in the discussion or the thought
Too often do we see reporters and journalists presenting "sound bytes" or
tiny clips of trivia linked to celebrities instead of doing real
reporting or journalism. Instead of engaging disenfranchised guests and
LISTENING to them through the interview process.
Yes, the world will feel the loss of Tim Russert, even if they live
in a far away place that has never heard of him. I link this blog
title to Joan Chittister's post at NCR because she says more about him
and covers the issue really well, as always. Thanks, Joan for your insights
again. and again. and again.
Thanks Tim. Forever. Condolences to all of the family and all who mourn his death.
