Hot on the heels of Scientologygate, in which The Atlantic prostituted its good name at the altar of a fast buck earlier this week, I can confirm that Our Man in Abiko has received two offers to do similar in the last couple of days, though the Johns were only offering free copy in exchange for a quickie link. Am I being puritanical in thinking such deals compromise my good name? I gave them short shrift, but it makes me wonder. Doing it for money doesn't seem so bad, as long as everyone knows up front there's no love involved.
But then what would be the point?

Secret handshake to Warped Gaijin for the video of more corporate journalism fun. Carry on.
