Most Say Luke Russert Screwed Up

In our Fish Poll yesterday we asked readers to decide whether NBC Congressional Correspondent Luke Russert breached any journalism ethics when he emceed “Grammys on the Hill” Wednesday night. WaPo‘s Paul Fahri raised the issue in a column Thursday.

An astonishing 67.74 percent of respondents said yes. Here’s how the numbers broke down:

  • “Yes, he broke his objectivity; get him into Journalism 101.” — 45.97 percent
  • “Yes, this wasn’t a big deal but you can’t be too careful.” — 21.77 percent
  • “No, stop with the more-objective-than-thou B.S.” — 17.75 percent
  • “No, Fahri read a little too much into this whole thing.” — 14.52 percent

Perhaps most searing was a comment on the Fish Poll from a reader: “Luke is young, inexperienced and not the brightest bulb. But hey, he has the ‘right’ last name and in DC isn’t that enough?”
