Today in stories that simply sell themselves.

Identifying The Daily Caller as a “news site” is highly generous to their hackery.

NBC’s David Gregory, host for Meet The Press, is headlining a conference for a major Republican advocacy group. The problem? It violates the journalism code of ethics: 

— Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.— Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.— Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.

Up the Burma Punx! Great, great Der Spiegel piece on Myanmar’s punk rockers and the  military junta’s war on them. Worst I had to take as a teenage Chaos UK fan was the occasional beatdown or egg thrown from a moving car; these guys and girls have to deal with much, much worse. Great piece of reporting.
