In Bill Moyers' documentary, Buying the War, Russert claims that he didn't raise sufficient doubts about what Cheney and others were telling him because critics and skeptics weren't contacting him. He tells Moyers: "To this day, I wish my phone had rung, or I had access to them."
Millions were protesting in the streets, United Nations inspectors, the International Atomic Energy Agency, various foreign governments, not to mention the World Socialist Web Site and other left-wing publications, were refuting the Bush government's claims, but none of this was accessible to Russert. In this, he's probably being honest. Attuned to what the powerful thought and considering left-wing opinion to be illegitimate, Russert only had ears for Cheney and his fellow conspirators.
Russert's Big Russ, on the other hand, was nothing but a saccharine account of an America were "traditional" values were honored, where "men were men," etc. In other words, a fictionalized America, conceived in the mind of a conformist
the USSR and China "constituted a significantly larger land mass, in toto, than did the United States."
