Journalistic ethics ranks right up there with legal ethics, pretty ugly, extinct life, found missing, and unbiased opinion--all of which can define today's version of reporting, but then again it's old news.

The source said "the final chapter is written in Gifford's voice." So the other chapters of her book were written in someone else's voice?

Nevermind, I just read the mother of all lies "The Arizona Republic has learned..."

While I may be able to understand the reporters giving her a little space, it's almost worse to her when they run stuff and her family or spokespeople have to clarify it later.

Gabby Giffords can not return to Congress since legally she has never left Congress. She did not resign her position when she was rendered unable to continue her job as congressional representative. Her district has been without representation since the attempted assassination. While her staffers are a bunch of great people, they legally do not represent the district. I don't recall the state or U.S. constitution making allowances for other sitting congressman to speak for the district either. Giffords needs to resign, recover and eventually run for office from her home in Houston.

What source(s) or proof do you have to support your contention AP obtained the book illegally? You have harped constantly about newspapers not sourcing their news. You have committed the same offense.

Phil Riske apparently either didn't read the blog and/or just doesn't understand plain English. A responsible, respected, and honest media source (the AP?) claimed/admitted they "purchased an advanced copy" of Giffords' book. There are none to be had. And even if there is, it is embargoed until Nov 15th. AP should not be "reporting" on the book's contents until then. But I guess if you are low enough to steal (or use stolen goods) why would you respect an embargo date?

The same MSM that, pardon the pun, jumped the gun and reported that she was indeed killed in the attack.....pathetic.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.
Absence to love is what wind is to fire. It extinguishes the small; it inflames the great.
Yes.I like article.

Under the Cortes standard, Giffords is unable to run for Congress. She could never get on the witness stand and testify as to who purchased her signs or have any meaningful consent to being a Representative. She would be a sham candidate if someone files for her to run.
