    Sent to me recently:

    A discussion panel put on by the IU National Sports Journalism Center is scheduled Nov. 2 (yes, election day, I know, but it was the only day we could do it). The panel is going to focus on sports journalism ethics in the digital age, and is going to focus largely on the recent scandals involving Brett Favre, Mike Wise's tweet, etc. The discussion is going to be important, but the panel is phenomenal:

    Mike Wise, Washington post Columnist
    Rob King, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of ESPN.com
    A.J. Daulerio, Editor-in-Chief of Deadspin.com
    Ashley Adamson, sports reporter for WISH-TV 8 in Indianapolis

    For local folk, the program is going to start at 7 p.m. on the fourth floor of the IUPUI Campus Center (and it's the day after Monday Night Football, so some national media may be interested in attending if they're going to be around an extra day for some reason). It's free to attend.

    For people out of the area, they can check out sportsjournalism.org the day after the event and we'll have a full transcript and video clips from the event available (I'll shoot you the links as well when I get them up).

    If you don't mind putting this out there, I'd really appreciate it. This is an important, and obviously very timely, subject to discuss.

    I guess Ashley Adamson will take the "yes" side of ethics. I hope she isn't overwhelmed by the numbers.

    This is parody, right?

    Yeah, I was thinking that, too. Couldn't they add a few people in favor of journalistic ethics to balance the panel a bit?

    Does Mike Wise have to do these sort of things as part of his community-service sentencing from the WaPo editors who kept him on the payroll?

    It's like Michael Vick speaking to kids in behalf of the Humane Society.

    IU has also announced that they have invited Bernie Madoff, Bernard Ebbers and Dennis Kozlowski to appear on a panel discussing Wall Street ethics.

    In other news, Rick Sanchez has been invited to speak during a Anti-Defamation League event.

    Granted, this panel could be balanced a little better, but aren't these the people with whom we want to discuss ethics?

    In a room full of journalists, most of us know the "right" philosophy. To hear the view of those whom many of us think are "wrong" seems like an opportune experience.
