Ed answers Ed: Aw, shucks. It's not against the law. It's not against any code of ethics that journalists have. I'm not sure you guys have a code of ethics, har de har har.
Hold it right there, Guv'nor. The journalists _have_ a code of ethics. I may be guilty, once again, of throwing data at a perfectly good punchline, but here it is:
I think this part might be relevant:
"shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity."
And other Ed? Here's something you might think about:
"Test the accuracy of information from all sources"
The world could use some more fact checking.
Why is it that the more I see of Rendell, the less I like him? Maybe I'm just in a crappy mood. I could believe that.
The code of ethics is excellent in every way, and I strongly suspect that TRMS is treating it as some sort of base religious document. Especially the Be Accountable portion.
