Oh, Diogenes
Call us quaint, but we think job one for journalists is to be skeptical of those in power. When journalists trade in that mandate for special access or for some hidden agenda, they deserve all the hissing and spitting that we can reasonably hiss and spit. Judy Miller may have thought that her years of prior work would mitigate the fundamental dishonesty of her pre-war reporting, but there are a lot of people who prefer their reporters, regardless of the reporter's CV, to remain honest brokers rather than de facto administration collaborators. The same holds true for Bob Woodward, who may receive special dispensations from the Washington Post, but who does not, we think, receive any such dispensations from the public at large. When a journalist secretly embeds himself in the administration he (or she) is charged to cover, it isn't a glancing blow to the public trust—it's cancerous. And when Woodward publicly called Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation "disgraceful" while hiding his own part in the drama, Woodward irrevocably disgraced himself by crossing the line from errors of omission to deeds of commission. His head on a platter, please.
