NBC suspends Billy Bush for the wrong reason

Billy Bush’s departure from the Today Show comes with a convenient script for public consumption.

The NBC Script

The truth is a bit nastier.  The profession of broadcast journalism and all other journalism requires a sacred trust between the interviewer and his counterpart.  A “hot mic” used to secretly record a private conversation to use as blackmail later provides a legal reason for redress.

I have never privately recorded a conversation without consent.  And should I record a conversation WITH CONSENT I would have little problem deleting portions of the conversation which do not pertain to the questions.

Billy Bush entrapped Donald Trump by violating rules of basic decency between a reporter and his guest.  Donald Trump was his guest. He crapped on him, scooped it up, canned it, and saved it to serve it up last week.
