    I think an absolute ban on allowing a source to see a story pre-publication is a bit silly, but showing a source a co-workers' story without her permission seems outrageous.

    Definitely outrageous.

    I can imagine scenarios where this might be justified, but I highly doubt this would have been one of those scenarios...

    Which ones? I certainly see many cases where it's justified if it's your own work. Much more difficult to see when it's not your work and you do not have permission to release it.

    If he showed a source a Dowd column before publication, chances are it had its share of typos and fact challenges. ::)

    He should get fired for spreading her horseshit beyond the NYT pages.
