The rest of the story...

I saw an interesting news story over the weekend that brought to light the long friendship between radio personality Paul Harvey and former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Harvey often submitted his news to Hoover prior to broadcast, which goes against everything taught in a journalism course. To read The Washington Post story, click here.

I love books and movies with the theme of journalistic integrity. If you're into that too, be sure to check out:

All the President's Men (book by reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward; movie released in 1976)
Good Night and Good Luck (movie released in 2005)
Almost Famous (movie released in 2000)

And, here's another story about how journalism is portrayed in the movies. Click here.
