I have a little question for Bob Woodwardâ€¦do you know what the word â€œjournalismâ€ means? You mentioned that protecting your sources was â€œjob oneâ€ in a situation like the one you are in. Where does it mention this in the definition of journalism? In which class did they teach that to you?
Here is another questionâ€¦if you were writing a book on sex crimes and you interviewed a man and all of a sudden it became apparent that he had raped your mother, would protecting your sources still be job one?
Now we all know how to get away with crimesâ€¦we tell every journalist what we did confidentially. Then they can all protect their source, even when that source is a criminal, just like Woodward! Think about it!
