Sen. Cornyn Questions Journos’ Ethics

Cornyn official portrait.jpgLast night Politico’s Ben Smith and CNN’s senior White House correspondent Ed Henry posted items online saying that Cornyn’s office had released a statement on President Obama’s speech before the speech had even begun.

And today Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) isn’t down with these journos.

Cornyn told some Capitol Hill reporters: “I’m a little offended by the lack of journalistic ethics. This is really a matter for convenience of reporters and others,” he said. …”I thought that the reporter was blatantly unethical. In fact, we try to do this in a way that accommodates people’s schedules and gets information out. I thought it was bad form.”

He was referring to Smith’s post. But perhaps Cornyn hadn’t seen Henry’s tweet that capitalized the word “BEFORE.”
