The apple does not fall far from the tree. I missed Tim Russert who could ask the tough questions from both sides. I hope he can stay with "LSDNBC". However it is refreshing to see that there is someone paid for by leftist leanings who is bluntly honest. He probably will not be able to stay, unless he is corrupted. But I plan to follow the career of this young reporter. He has huge shoes to fill, but it looks like he is making a good start
I would hope he doesn't go to FNC. I think putting someone in a liberal environment to do tough interviewing is just what that network would need. Aside from that, working in such an environment would allow him to grow some thick skin and integrity that the other "journalists" they employ do not have. You have to lead by example, and at those networks they have no one to show them the way.That is the same reason I think FNC should keep Geraldo and Shep. I don't have to watch their shows, and they add a different POV for those that are interested. I just don't like the personalities.I do watch MSNBC Morning Joe so as to keep my perspective and to stay informed on how liberals debate their points.

Luke may be working or continuing to work at NBC out of loyalty and memory to/of his father and/or that he feels he can make a difference at msnbc.Considering the braindrain that occurs at msnbc, I'll posit that eventually Luke will leave. It'd be the height of irony if he got on at Fox, but I'd still respect him if he went to another flagship. No matter what, he's showing himself to be a good journalist, and that is a positive for him, and perhaps a saving grace for msnbc which is so full of garbage.
[...] As for the Russert clip, it’s humiliating enough to have earned kudos this morning from both Limbaugh and Beck for the cub reporter who wouldn’t leave Rangel alone. Eighty years old, 40 years in [...]
