Jay Rosen a year ago, and now. No change.
Note taking
If political reporters took their role as advocates as seriously as entertainment reporters do we'd all be better off. ...If Nir Rosen can imbed with the Taliban and do his job, why can't you imbed with the Senate?
Reporters style themselves judges when they should model themselves on lawyers in private practice. But the model of moral semi-consciousness, of advocate for hire, in this case by the public at large, isn't respectable. Everybody hates lawyers.

But legal philosophers are taken very seriously.
