Best Answer

Tim Russert worked for a Democratic New York U.S. Senator and a Democratic New York State Governor before becoming a journalist. This type of transition is typical in the American media -- former Democratic Party staff become the media. For example, George Stepanopolis is on ABC as a Political Commentator. He used to work in Democratic President Bill Clinton's White House. Studies have shown that journalists as a group vote 9-to-1 for Democrats.
