Caesar’s Wife and Sports Journalism – When is Close too Close? | DropInPitch: "There are now  22 Sun journalists who have been arrested as part of Operation Elveden, investigating corrupt payments to public officials. At the Sun from its inception, paying for news was the way the newsroom did business: the public were invited to sell stories by ringing the newsdesk. It is one thing to suborn a public official – but arguably quite another to agree a £300 tip fee to a soldier or prison officer. Nobody warned journalists at the time that what was seen as ‘doing one’s job’ might be illegal." 'via Blog this'
