    Yeah but

    It's the second good column by Borges in a row (along with his CBA backgrounder). maybe he's changed up his meds?

    Wooooahh!!!! I didn't know the part that the agent is his agent also.

    Borges is completely unethical. One would expect at least some sort of disclosure.

    The piece was a good piece, but the lack of that important disclosure is definitely a breach of journalism ethics and is a very cynical treatment of the Boston Globe readers.

    I would hope the Globe management looks very closely at this.

    I didn't know there was such a thing as "journalism ethics".

    No doubt, I agree with your point. Borges' opinions have their history. However the disclosure requirement is not as subjective, it is more cut and dried and is a responsibility that also is shouldered by Boston Globe management. So my criticism is not so much against Borges (kind of like yelling at a 2 year old for throwing a tantrum - that's what they do) it's against his "parents" - the Globe Management for enabling the journalistic breach by not inserting a disclosure.
