Pundit Payola

Cathy Young is right. Pundits of all political stripes should be disclosing any payment they receive from an outside entities that have an interest in the area of the pundit's expertise or writing.

Likewise, all professional journalists should disclose when they use information supplied by a particular interest group for their "news" stories -- if for no other reason than that it allows a reader to gauge whether the reporter is gathering facts only from one (biased) side.
