LAW PROFESSOR TOM SMITH notes an interesting admission from Tom Oliphant.
UPDATE: Several readers mention this story in response to Oliphant's remarks on journalistic standards.
Another reader notes that Oliphant's high journalistic standards probably should have led him to disclose that his daughter works for the Kerry/Edwards campaign. Hmm. Maybe -- though in the world of journalism, I think such connections are assumed, and thus aren't regarded as requiring disclosure.
