Walk Like A Pundit

Luke wears clothes in this unfortunately sharp image

Whispered asides floating around the NBC studios on Nebraska Avenue in northwest Washington tell Lloyd Grove, this morning:

Tempers at NBC flared this week when Huffington skewered Russert's ethics for using his prestigious Sunday morning policy-and-politics program to hype his 19-year-old son Luke's sports-talk radio show.

Oh my, “media-political aristocrat” Tim is miffed while Ms. Huffington keeps plugging away at his questionable ethics, a veritable tempête de merde of punditry.
Meanwhile, young Luke, armed with not much including a buttoned lip regarding his salary, told the Washington Post this week:

"Me[sic] and James are always at…games," said the former ESPN intern…”People who sat around us found it interesting to listen to us…”

He makes it come alive, doesn’t he?
If only I had “sat around" instead of reading this mouth-dropping news alone.
If only Luke and James were here to soothe my fevered brow “debating certain issues”.
But, as Arianna reports, Tim is one busy big media camper with fun events like an Ethics conference:

Inviting Tim Russert to keynote a conference on journalistic ethics is like having Jack Abramoff keynote a conference on lobbying reform, Jim Frey lecture on truth in advertising, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lead High Holy Days services at Temple Beth Israel.

Thankfully, Mater and Pater Russert only reproduced once so we can rest assured no other talentless progeny can be sprung on the unsuspecting American public.
