Reporters Revolving Door

Reporters Revolving Door

How ethical is it for reporters who cover government to join government ?

How can we trust their news reporting ?

One day you give a tip to a reporter, the next day he is working for your boss.

Do newspaper have any rules about reporters who cover gov't or business etc, about working for them.

You always hear the newspapers say we represent the "People" well I for one don't like the idea of my "representative" joining the people they cover.
