Journalism Standards

As author Dee Power had to explain today at absolutewrite these two stories on Publishamerica have been in the making for months. Lot's of interviews and vetted research of the kind most folks don't realize goes into every story they read in the papers. Both are decent jobs with a bizarre and ticklish subject bordering on criminal on the part of the company in question. Legal at the Washington Post knows where the line is.

As former legendary editor Ben Bradlee said of Carl Bernstein, "he frequently gets out ahead of the facts, but we don't want to discourage him."

By the time they're boiled down, a solid story is left in the wake.
