Public mind: confused on journalism 

An amusing side-note in the Times' story about the Plame investigation, which they refer to (hearteningly!) as "exhaustive and inconclusive":

Earl Caldwell, a journalism professor who was involved in the 1972 Supreme Court case as a reporter for The Times, said he was troubled by the reporters' decisions to testify.

"In the public mind, it gets confusing," Mr. Caldwell said. "How are all these reporters going in and testifying? We're getting in a position where people will see us as an arm of the government."

A little late to stave off that impression, don't you think, Mr. Caldwell?
