We Take The Dubner Oath

Jan 14, more graceful wording
It's started going around...italics are my additions:
I swear that I have never taken money or received services -- whether directly or indirectly -- from any political campaign or political group or government agency -- whether federal, state, or local -- or anyone else -- in exchange for any service performed in my job as a journalist (or commentator, or blogger, or whatever you think I should be called).

And an excellent essay by Zephyr Teachout on Financially Interested Blogging (which is a bad thing when undisclosed, and is problematical even when it is disclosed.)

For the record: our financial interests would be much better served if we stopped blogging.

For the record, it was Jeffrey Dubner who came up with the oath, not Stephen Dubner. What a difference...
