"The Morning News" profiles television "journalists" to help America find a new news source.

"Tim Russert (NBC)
Russert is the king of Meet The Press, an NBC news program considered the most rigorous and influential of the political interview shows. Its format is emulated throughout the industry: Host respectfully asks a politician a softball question with multiple exits; politician ignores question and opens party-rhetoric spigot all over a different issue; host nods respectfully—always respectfully—and moves to the next question. Repeat.
Positives: So sublimely intelligent you can barely see his brain working.
Negatives: Sweaty. Resembles pork."
