I am in 100 percent agreement with this proposal for the future of Meet The Press:
So why not have the best of both worlds? Russert was many things, but he wasn’t a “moderator.” Moderators balance and direct debates. Russert, to his credit, was a prosecutor. Why not make Chuck Todd the actual moderator of the show and have him moderate a panel of journalists?
You could a roster of different panelists, of whom two or three might be on any given episode depending on who the guests are and what’s big in the news at the moment.
