Here is one more journalist who agrees with my assessment
that the NY Times and co is guilty of big league gossip, or as he put it, "show-off journalism." World Net Daily has an article
about Richard Valeriani, a former NBC reporter, and his comparison of the Time story to giving the Nazis Anne Frank's address.
"There was no compelling need for the public to know about this," he said. "The story itself acknowledged there was nothing illegal going on – only an anonymous acknowledgement that there was a 'potential' for abuse."
An interesting note in support of this view, and something that I didn't know before--the Times won a Pulitzer Prize for their story! This is one of the most blatant examples of, not only treasonous behavior, but self-serving journalism.
