More on the Paterson press conference, from intern Bharat Ayyar:
“He was a resident of Buffalo, New York, had worked in the governor’s office of the State of New York, and has been an outstanding journalist,” he said. “For those who watched Meet the Press every Sunday, any guest on that program was subjected to his steadfast, disciplined, critical and honest nature."
"The world was benefited by his contributions," Paterson continued. "We send our deepest sympathies and prayers to the family of Tim Russert."
