233. Thankless job?
That statement alone is insulting. These people are thanked to the tune of millions of dollars, multiple homes and private jets. You actually say 'ver little pay' about Russert who made millions a year and flew dozens of people into parties at his Nantucket mansion. Very little pay? These are rich men and women. Very little appreciation? Like being famous and every opinoion televized?
You post is filled with delusion. Journalism sould be one of the pillars of our Democracy, but folks like Russert failed that duty, time and time again. He denigrated it as do his fawning peers.
If that is a thankless job, please can I have a thankless job too? I love Nantucket and can barely afford the weekend there.
