Reporters get middling marks for honesty

TV reporters and newspaper reporters rank numbers 13 and 14 for ethics and honesty in the annual Gallup poll of 22 professions in the U.S. This may rank journalists (Gallup doesn't use the word) somewhat higher than in previous year's polls. Most interesting is the complete lack of interest journalists (reporters?) seem to have in the ranking of their own calling. A thorough search of stories linked on Google news reveals none that mention the news person's ranking. But then, it's probably "not news" that journalists have a mediocre ranking for ethics , right? Linked is the Gallup site where they show the full list.
