Did you read the rest of this thread? We are agreeing and you don't seem to realize it.

My point was exactly your last sentence...

"Why should on-the-spot street/docu photography have to meet other people's standards?"

The same is true for Paperazzi and new reporters... What's important is that the purpose of the photo was taken and used and appreciated for its purpose.

Cliveh was saying that the news reporter DIDN'T have integrity, and I was inferring that he did, and does cliveh... That was my point...
