Olympic torch run called a conflict for scribes

Cosby Cosh of the National Post writes: "A couple dozen Canadian television reporters, mostly employees of CTV, are being criticized this week for having agreed to accept specially reserved places in the Olympic torch relay for the 2010 Vancouver Games. Yes, these journalists have a conflict of interest. About that, there can be no confusion. The question before us: Is it the kind of conflict of interest that matters. . . ." His bottom line: " . . . I think it's clear that the idea of newsmen running in the torch relay stinks; that they should have refused; and that they should be taken less seriously if they go through with it."
