    I'd think you'd understand the conflict of interest here?

    If i own stock in a company, and pay daily for a copy of the wall street journal to read on the progress of that companies stock, i think i Certainly have a right ot insist the reporter covering that company isnt getting hummers from the company president while his secretary funnels the companies assets to a swiss account.

    •  Nonsense. (none)
      And you certainly have the right to insist that the person who reports on that company doesn't dye their hair, or eat turkey sandwiches too, right?

      I mean, what's your argument, here?  Is it "Sex causes all people to lose their morals and their honor"?

      •  wow (none)
        Im pretty sure anyone else following this gets it.

        If you think its acceptable for say.. a NY Times reporter to have sex with say... the Leader of the administration supported proposed Iraqi puppet government.. and dont think it has any effect on the reporting.... i dont know what else there is to say.

        •  What, you finally picked up my message? (none)
          I don't think it necessarily has any effect on the reporting.  I think there's a large percentage of people on the planet who can keep their duty and their personal lives separate.  You don't.

            of the population dont. You seem to believe that because a person having sex with a government official gets a huge nobid contract that you cant apply cause and effect or use logic to make a connection. And that you have no right to object. That is positively bizarre
