Journalist Ethics

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on November 25, 2011

Maybe it is just me, but if I were a working journalist for, say, the Washington Post, I would not be involved in briefing Democratic staffers on Capitol Hill, given that such an activity would cast further doubts on what might be my already questionable sense of impartiality.

And maybe it is just me, but if I were the ombudsperson for, say, the Washington Post, and I had already, say, rebuked Jennifer Rubin for a mere retweet, I would definitely write something about Klein’s decision to play the role of hyperpartisan hack. Alas, as of the time of this writing, nothing has been written, and of course, it ought to come as no surprise whatsoever that as of the time of this writing, Klein has had nothing to say about his decision to cast any degree of impartiality to the winds.
