Joe Conason Embarrasses Patrick Healy

After dissecting Healy's tabloid-worthy peek into the Clinton bedroom and the subsequent media salivation, Conason digs up a telling Healy quote:
"[I]t is reassuring to know that Mr. Healy, at least, is a high-minded professional searching for significance. As the Times reporter told the American Society of Newspaper Editors a few years ago: “The media’s future depends on journalists exercising this responsibility in a way that earns them the public’s trust and confidence …. The most meaningful part of being a journalist, and the reason I chose that path, is the reward of telling stories about real-life, high-stakes matters of consequence, stories that will have an impact on real people.”
