Davis on Russert: "We Lost One of the Great Ones"
Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.-11th) today released the following statement on the death of newsman Tim Russert:
"We lost one of the great ones today. Tim Russert exemplified what is best about journalism. He was fair. He was hard-hitting. He was informed. And he came at his tasks with a smile, a sense of joy and humor that urged us all toward comity and cooperation. He was a giant in the news business, as pillar of the Washington scene, a terrific sports fan and family man and a genuinely good person who will be missed."
Davis appeared with Russert four times on Meet The Press.
