  •  There is a Journalistic Society (1+ / 0-)

    that doesn't accept her amongst their members right?

    If not, we really need a higher standard to differentiate between GOP operative goosestepping goons like Malkin and real journalists.

    •  That is a fantastic idea... (0+ / 0-)

      A jounalistic society, with a published set of ethics that responsible journalists would join.  An organazation that actually could refuse membership to Malkin or O'Reilly...

      Other professions have such organizations (doctors, lawyers) - such that they can be kicked out for misconduct (even breaches that are not actually illegal).

      That's what's needed to restore any faith in "journalist" as an honourable profession.  It would have to mean more than a set of vague ideas that change from one jounalist to the next.  What we have now, is the equivalent of medieval "doctors" - people who thought bleeding patients was treatment for most ills and eshewed hygiene.  

      Where is the hyppocratic oath of the media?
