Vargas case prompts discussion in U.K.

The U.S. world of journalism has been hot with discussion about the case of Jose Antonio Vargas, the Filipino who outed himself as an illegal immigrant.

Now Roy Greenslade at the Guardian has stepped in. (That’s The Guardian as in The Guardian in LONDON, ENGLAND.)

What’s so wrong with being a journalist and an activist?

If nothing else, Greenslade’s piece points out two things:

  1. The U.S. view of journalism is not the universal view, even among democracies
  2. What happens in one country has an impact on another. (Even if sometimes the impact is forcing people to look more closely at their beliefs and practices. And is that really so bad?)
