“Thanks, Professor. I realize that this is probably a discussion that should continue. We never even got to what the Talmud itself may or may not say about reporting vis-à-vis lashon harah. So there's that. But what about when the means of getting a story are less than ethical? A teacher of mine from the University of Florida's J-school pointed out that the reporters of the WaPo Walter Reed story never identified themselves as journalists (not so journalistically ethical), but they might never have gotten the story otherwise. So there's that, too. Things to think about.”
