Church Considers State 

It is always interesting when the church of journalism looks at itself on the publishing side where business decisions are made. Here is one example. It seems the "state" of publishing is as guilty of prevarication as PR practitioners are supposed to be. However, it is rare that journalism looks at itself. In the last two years, there were a number of circulation scandals involving US newspapers fudging their numbers. Newspapers dutifully reported it when it came to light, but there didn't seem to be an exposes of the dirty secrets of the newspaper industry.

It's natural not to talk about oneself. On the other hand, if one sets oneself up as a seeker of truth, it should be unavoidable.
