Michael Goldfarb, a web editor for the right-wing Weekly Standard, was a blogger on the McCain campaign last fall. In a Q & A with CJR, he says, among other things, that he was told his role would be to “attack the press” in the blog:
And that struck me as a really bad idea, but when a presidential campaign calls up and offers you a job you take it.
Really? There’s no boundary one should fail to cross when offered a presidential-campaign job? Not in Goldfarb’s world, apparently.
At least readers of this person’s writing now have a solid sense of his ethical standards.
