Every word of this. He was one of the best journalistic voices, so badly needed these days and his loss is profound. He was an excellent music journalist as well, and a true music fan. I’ll miss his savvy takes on Twitter, and Press Run. May his memory be a blessing.
What a breathtakingly tragic loss! His brilliant take on current events, politics, humanity enriched us all. He truly was a great man and will be sorely missed.
Wow, I'm floored by this. I had just started reading his substack only a few months ago and it quickly became required reading for me every day. He was uncanny in his ability to detail how the mainstream media constantly under cuts Biden's accomplishments, overplays his faults, and generally holds Democrats to a different and losing standard than they do Republicans. I'd come to depend on his insightful takes, it's devastating to know that there will be no more.
It is so incredibly sad. Brilliant human. I am so sorry for his family’s incredible loss. Our democracy has lost a great hero.
I am a long time subscriber to Press Run and loved that he recorded his newsletter so I could listen on the go. I will miss hearing his voice. He was shining a light on how the press has been failing us. So sorry for his family and all who knew him.
I might have heard one of his last appearances on the Stephanie Miller show on Monday. He was a regular and so insightful. Terrible loss.
As am I and many, many others.
We desperately need another to truly pick up his mantle. If any one can
This is a huge loss, my condolences to his family.
My heart breaks for his wife and kids. That he should leave this earth at a time when his voice is so sorely needed; seems cruel. Condolences to all his peers and friends.
Like all of you, I found Eric Boehlert an indispensable writer and lover of democracy. We will all miss him so much, both his acute journalistic criticism and his appreciation of music. The songs, each one so well chosen and introduced, with which he concluded his newsletters “because we all need a break,” taught me so much. My sympathies to his family in their great loss.
I learned of his death at the end of tonight's ReidOut on MSNBC. It is so sad. He will be missed.
Very sad to hear this, this morning.
I agree wholeheartedly! He was a necessary voice of truth for our times. He will be missed! Thoughts and prayers to his family.
I'm sorry for your loss. That was such an eloquent statement; l'm sure he'd be touched.
I am in total shock, this is such a hard loss for us all. He was brilliant.
