Russert to Give Media Ethics Lecture?

Oh Jeebus. Maybe he'll explain the ethics of spending months talking about the Plame case without, you know, telling his viewers about his role in the whole affair.

Maybe he can talk about this:

In the film we see RNC glee as AP accepts their oppo research on a Gore misstatement during the first debate . During their months of filming BBC producers also observed producers for NBC's Tim Russert among others calling to enquire if the team had any new material. This was apparently normal trading on both sides.

RNC researcher Griffin comments in the film: "It's an amazing thing when you have topline producers and reporters calling you and saying 'we trust you.... we need your stuff.'"
