Tim Russert's kid really bothers me.

He is younger than my youngest kid. He is an entitled smart-ass and that comes across loud and clear. Getting straight news from him is, I suppose, tolerable. Having him give his "opinion" to some other moron teevee host is worthless bullshit. Having him "explain" things as if he were knowledgable is insulting to anyone who watches MSNBC (who is likely more informed that he is.)

Listening to him prattle on as MSNBC's Cliff Watch continues is painful.

Anybody looking to mainstream media for real journalism is going to have to wade through a lot of shit before finding a morsel or two of actual journalism. That's just not practiced anymore, if it ever was to any high degree.

TV is about ratings. Profit trumps ... well, everything. Always follow the money.

I am not against all nepotisim - half the people I work with got their foot in the door because of their parents - but they all started from the ground up. It's when they are started in positions other people have to earn that it is resented. And certainly it is doing Luke Russert no favors - he is routinely ridiculed.

I would not consider working on New Years Day night "starting at the top."
If this cliff crapola wasn't happening he would be filing short nothing reports for hourly updates or something. Its his moment and frankly as I see and hear it, he is a clown.

We're all powerful now. I don't have the time to elaborate. I'm working. But this business of having power that one hasn't earned is a big deal. It even involves global warming.

Today interviewing Debbie Wasserman Shultz.

End of the interview, he did that thing that the lazy clown "journalists" do and hit her with, "So, a run for Governor in 2014?"

Shultz strongly, with an condescending edge said, "that would be a BIG no."

I suspect they don't respect him much, either.

10. Having him "explain" things is indeed insulting to the viewers

It's quite clear that he understands the issues and dynamics about as well as the average viewer, meaning less well than many.

His explanations are a bit like listening to somebody explain to you the subject matter that you've written a book about, citing your own work without knowing it was you. You want to pat him on the head, but you also want to punch him in the face.

While I didn't necessarily agree with Tim Russert on many issues, I respected him. I thought he did an admirable job of being an objective journalist. But his son is either too ideological to be a competent "journalist" or simply too young and too inexperienced for his job.

I wish him well. I hope he either finds his rightful place on Clear Channel Communications or at Fox or he "mans up" and realizes how stupid he sounds.

He doesn't have to talk to them like Andy Hardy would to Judge Hardy's peers, he doesn't have to call Alex Witt "Ms Witt," but for godssakes don't talk to people who've invested a lifetime into a career in journalism like you're on equal footing.

I don't need to get my news from someone who looks like he was butt chugging cheap vodka in a frat house before he came to work.

42. He is a classic example of someone

who gets a job because of their name, or who they know. If he'd actually had to do the hard work of journalism, he'd be lucky to be doing the obits in Paducah, KY, And I do think that Paducah is a lovely city -- I've been there and liked it. But I'm using it as the stand-in for the kind of out-of-the-way nothing sort of place he'd be in if he actually got a job on his own merit.

And I couldn't stand the father, either, and was quite appalled at how he was canonized when he died.

59. So, so glad I'm not alone

When he comes on I have to either fast-forward or change the channel. He reminds of a 12 year old who gets to sit at the adult's table and tries to act like a grown up. You can tell he practices in front of the mirror to look more serious and authoritative. He does this funny little thing with his eye brows and it is so goofy.

He looks like a SNL sketch of an inexperienced, privileged son of a famous television personality. I'm afraid this kid will NEVER be ready for prime time. If he wants to be a journalist, maybe he needs to go out in the world and earn the right to be in front of a camera. I wonder what his more experienced colleagues say about him behind his back.

These people are NOT his peers. A little deference to his more experienced and knowledgeable co-workers would be appropriate. The fact that he has the same gig as the very professional Kelly O'Donnell on the hill is mind-boggling.

I can't believe they keep letting him guest host as if there is a chance some day he might have his own show!

Do you want your news filtered by the Comcast corporation by a bunch of blow-dried Beltway hacks? There are plenty of independent news sources out there.

M$NBC is not liberal -- they are corporate. There's a big difference.

If you direct your comments to him and want his followers know how he screwed up use a period in front of his account name like this .@LukeRussert

You can also go with a hash tag as such #LukeRussert

You can also include @msnbc so his bosses know what the hell he is doing wrong. You can have more than one twitter account name included in a tweet.

He's in over his head. It is painful. He'll never grow because
he'll never be forced to figure anything out, never raise his
standards. Sad. NBC should have given him an 18 month
internship.

Peter Jennings was a laughing stock in the mid-60s as anchor.
Only there because of his famous Canadian broadcasting father.
He had to go out and do hard news for years before returning
to a triumphant career.
