What an amazing job this morning.

Bill O'Neill

MSNBC became virtually all-Tim-Russert-all-the-time from the announcement 
of Tim's  passing until about 11:00.  Considering that nobody could have
been prepared for the event, they somehow got an immense amount of 
pertinent video seemingly without any mishaps, and on a Friday in
June, managed to bring on so many people associated with Tim over the years.
A great job.
