I wanted to be Zoe Barnes…until episode 4. Sleeping with your source- especially a vindictive congressman?

So on a scale of 1 to ethical, how does everyone feel about pulling a @RealZoeBarnes for story ideas? @HouseofCards

 The New York Times regards itself as the leading newspaper in the country. However, based on this story, it appears its reporter did not adhere to one of the most basic tenets of the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code Of Ethics, to “avoid conflicts of interest.”
Maybe Watkins would’ve remembered that one if she didn’t spend so much time binge-watching “House of Cards.”
