A flag flew at half-staff at Rockefeller Center yesterday in honor of TIM RUSSERT who passed away unexpectedly last Friday. Mr. Russert was the moderator of NBC's MEET THE PRESS and Washington Bureau Chief. Mr. Russert had led “Meet the Press,” the oldest continuous program on television, since 1991, and made the program the premier place for newsmakers and political candidates to make their case to the nation. I took this photo yesterday, Sunday near the NBC studio at Rockefeller Center. And if it's Sunday, it's "Meet the Press" with Tim Russert. Tim Russert's chair was empty on the program yesterday, when Tom Brokaw led a warm tribute to the beloved newsman.
