Re: Russert

From a reader:

Jonah,

Interesting tidbit about Russert. On the morning sports show here in Boston (Dennis and Callahan on WEEI), the 2 hosts were referring to this story about Powell’s aide cutting the interview short and the outright hypocrisy Russert is showing. Mr. Russert came on to their show last week to promote his new book and the press aide for Mr. Russert was, according to the two of them, very heavy-handed in making sure that the interview not take longer than 10 minutes (the same length of time the Powell interview was supposed to last). Apparently it’s all right for Russert to go over the allotted time during an interview he is conducting, but not one that he is giving.

Unacceptable indeed.
