    This is quite amusing;

    “Pretending to be someone you’re not, stealing phone records and attempting to tap into other forms of personal communications are not just things reporters don’t do…they’re things that can, will and have gotten reporters fired from respectable news organizations.”

    From what I recall, the firings of reporters only take place when a scandal forces such action as if “we will fire somebody if he is caught doing it”. Remember, the financial press was subpoenaed by the SEC and refused citing privilege. The H-P scandal only erupted after getting caught and where evidence is obtained to support the allegations. Reporters simply deny access to the evidence making it harder to prove the allegations.

    Oh what a wonderfully convenient world they live.
