Here's another question for you. Is it ethical for reporters to serve on the boards of any but professional journalism organizations?

Would this include, for example the Humane Society? PETA? Save the Children? Slow Food USA? Save Darfur?

The United Way? Red Crescent? The Newpaper Guild? Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility? MoveOn?

Isn't serving on the board of a professional journalism organization political advocacy?

Should a reporter give them money?

(This is not a trick question. I've been getting reality checks from reporter buds on the KWRK sitch. They agree that I have no use for community journalism without a political agenda is the signal for a reporter to bail out, basically. They all also volunteered that they either did not register to vote while working as reporters, or registered as independents. I forgot to ask if they served on boards or gave money to charities. Would you employ a reporter who gave money to the Red Cross? Doctors without Borders? Anything with "peace" or "justice" or "organizing" in its title?)
