The stories of straight-up corruption are few and far between, in my experience.

Bigger issues are far more murky and grey, which is why it's good that this discussion is happening and it's good that people are thinking and talking about this. A few too many GAFfers are making it seem more black-and-white than it actually is, and there isn't enough acknowledgement here that there are some very wide ranges of ethical practices, but issues surrounding personal relationships between press and the people they cover are far more frequent than incidents of straight-up bribery or corruption or even cases when journalists work for companies they cover.
