Fearless prediction for 2012 or 2016 or 2020: When we have a Republican in the White House, watch for Janine Jackson, Peter Hart, and Steve Rendall to make a big deal on CounterSpin about the revolving door between administration and journalism. Watch for them to decry George Will being a journalist but also Ronald Reagan's speech writer, etc.
I actually think it is wrong. I think that they should be either/or. If journalism is to have any value, we can't see them traipsing back and forth to the White House and back.
But I do find it rather sickening that this was an issue for CounterSpin when Bully Boy Bush was occupying the White House but they no longer care about it. Situational morality if you ask me.
