She says it!

Seipp (see nose, on the):
Bradlee’s notion that journalists should refrain from displaying any political opinion except by voting also seems unrealistic. No marching in political rallies even if you’re on an unrelated beat like sports, the venerated former Washington Post editor tells Lehrer; no accepting paid speaking engagements from any organization other than a non-profit — “Just stay out of it!” Presumably the problem is then solved.

But what about the larger issue of stories that don’t get covered at all because of the unexamined assumptions of those who decide even counts as news?
I've noted before, the NYT's editorial staff consists of 337 people -- not very many people considering their influence.
