    Wow, how sad. Condolences to his family. He certainly went in the prime of his life, way too young. I thought he was a good journalist. I liked the way he moderated the presidental debates.

    Sad to hear on Friday the 13th. I liked him and thought his reporting was fair.

    This past Monday after LSU won the super regional baseball playoff, a fan who with his son died of a heart attack in the parking lot. He was in his early 50's .

    Someone just put a dry-erase board (his trademark) at NBC with "Tim We Will Miss You" on it.

    Election eve won't be the same.

    Very sorry to hear this. He might have been a Dem, but I think he was more fair than most journalists. And he seemed to be a good person. He will be missed.

    It's pretty scary for someone that age to go so suddenly. I guess we never know when HE will call us.
    I agree. He was probably the fairest of all the Liberal MSM. He would ask tough questions of the Dems as well. He wasn't as likely to softball them like his collegues. It's like he was trying to show that they weren't keeping their promises.

    Very, very close to my age as well.
    Probably the most open minded Democrat I had ever heard.
    RIP Tim. He did his job well, and was a friend to all on both sides.

    Absolutely a liberal, just not the crazy kind.

    A good man by all accounts, may his family find solace and peace.

    I did enjoy watching him now and then. It doesn't matter that I didn't share the same views as he. I enjoyed seeing his genuine glee for football and his never wavering support for his Buffalo Bills. Plus, he just didn't seem like a mean guy.

    If you want to see what subjugating your life to political views does to your soul, wander over to the cesspool and see how they react. And keep in mind that he was closer to a lib than a conservative.
