Dear Mr. Jones.

I want to commend the Washington Post for publishing Amitai Etzioni's article about the failure of the graduate schools of business to teach their students ethics. I suggest that you ask your editors to follow this up with an article by someone who could write an article about the ethics of journalists and how much they are influenced by schools of journalism. I would like to see an explanation of why so few newspapers, including the Post, failed to tell readers that a Pew Research Center survey of 1,365 adults in July found that only 35% believe the media usually get the facts straight; 67% say they try to cover up their mistakes, and only 23% say they are willing to admit them. That is a shocking report card, but hiding it from your readers is even more shocking. The Pew survey has been reported on the Internet. Don't the editors know they can refuse to run it but they can't hide it?
