(Newser) – Tim Russert's son, Luke, landed a sweet gig covering youth issues at NBC News after his dad died last summer. Just one problem: No one's seen him since March, the New York Post reports. "It's like, 'Well, that's what you get for nepotism,' " says one NBC insider. Russert, 23, was visible during the presidential campaign, but his last blog post came in December, and he hasn't Twittered or been on the air since March 31.
