Hypocrisy And The Journalists' Closed Shop

Compare the ongoing case of Suzanne Breen in Northern Ireland with the outing of Nightjack, the serving Detective Constable by Partick Foster of the Times. It appears that the ethics of the dead tree press learned at journalism colleges only stretch as far as their fellow chapel members. If only Nightjack had sold his information to a newspaper to increase its circulation and preserve hacks' jobs instead of blogging it himself he would still retain his anonymity. Triples all round!
