One Question

One Question for the Seattle Times' Jim Brunner

By Erica C. Barnett October 19, 2012

Jim Brunner, the Seattle Times reporter who's covering the governor's race and who was tasked with covering his newspaper's decision to contribute a $75,000 independent expenditure for Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna and another one for the gay marriage measure, did not join more than 100 of his colleagues in signing a letter protesting the decision.

Although he declined to talk to PubliCola on the record, saying he wasn't doing interviews, Brunner made his point on Twitter, noting curtly: "For the record - I didn't sign newsroom letter b/c I was writing/reporting story about it. Call me old-fashioned about journalism ethics."

Unlike, one might reasonably infer, his bosses.
