They're merely formalizing the relationship

Dem exclusive? Reporters jump ship

In three months since Election Day, at least a half-dozen prominent journalists have taken jobs working for the federal government.

Journalists, including some of those whoíve jumped ship, say itís better to have a solid job in government than a shaky job ó or none at all ó in an industry thatís fading fast.

It must be such a relief not to have to pretend anymore. To be able to drop the laughable charade of "ethics" and "impartiality." Now they get to do the same job they've been doing, except they're guaranteed a living as long as you and I are still honest enough to pay our taxes. What's the downside?
