Proverb: the counsel you would have another keep, first keep yourself

Regular readers of RMEW will be familiar with the Reuters Trust Principles and the agency's Handbook of Journalism.  We refer to these frequently to illustrate the way Reuters correspondents regularly violate their own corporate governance charter and ethical guidelines with patent partisanship and skewed reporting.

Dean Wright is Global Editor, Ethics, Innovation and News Standards for Reuters.  On the Reuters website, Wright's bio reads:
"He leads the process of reviewing, establishing and encouraging adherence to standards in Thomson Reuters journalism and works with editors to promote innovation. He writes a regular column and works with Editor in Chief David Schlesinger in maintaining the editorial relationship with the Reuters trustees and upholding and promoting the Reuters Trust Principles."
We recently discovered two interesting videos of Wright talking about online journalism ethics and the Reuters handbook, respectively.
