    Agreed, but it happened earlier.

    The "great loss for journalism" was Russert's career in journalism, not his disappearance from it.  Russert's career was a shining example of the multitude of non-objective Gingrich/Reagan orthodoxy that was taken on non-critical face value.  

    The burden was always on those who did not drink the GOP cool-aid to bring the assumptive conservative conventional wisdom back to the center before they could even start a conversation that added any value to public discourse.  Those moments were rare and quickly dispelled by follow-up guests or the weight of GOP ideologues who were thrown soft-balls while Russert lay, without a glove, sunbathing in the right field grass.
