The Power and the Glory:
Tim Russert and the 52 Talking Heads
Who Want to Pick Your Next President
Tim Russert, host of NBC's "Meet the Press," has passed.
And just as news broke of his sudden death, Newsmax magazine's July 2008 cover story was hitting newsstands featuring Tim Russert on its cover!
In this Newsmax Special Report, "The Power and the Glory," we reveal the media talking heads people like Russert who are exerting tremendous influence this election year.
Nobody exemplified this media power better than Russert.
Take, for example, the pivotal moment in the presidential primary campaign when Russert grilled Sen. Hillary Clinton during an October 2007 debate about her position regarding a plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens in New York state.
Clinton stumbled. She contradicted herself and, as one wag noted later, "gave two different answers while trying to give none at all."
It was the first time Hillary had "lost" a debate. It was a major turning point for Hillary, as Sen. Barack Obama seized on her snafu and began rising in the polls. Russert made it happen.
Russert wasn't done with Hillary, however. In May of this year he once again launched a broadside, this time taking her to task for her claim that she and daughter Chelsea came under sniper fire during a visit to Bosnia.
Russert's squeeze of Hillary showed that today's pundits are the electronic equivalent of attack dogs and suggested that the outcome of the November elections could well hinge on the influence of those political talking heads.
For the first time, Newsmax magazine unmasks the talking heads not only their backgrounds, but also their hidden agendas.
In this special edition we name names in "Newsmax's Guide to the Wild, Competitive World of Political Punditry." As this election comes down to the finish, you'll need to have our special report.
