Register: Never Talk To Government Officials!

John Seiler at The Orange County Register's Orange Punch blog is pissed about the hypocrisy surrounding the federal indictment of former professional baseball pitcher Roger Clemens.

Clemens' alleged crime?
Lying to Congress about his past steroid abuse.


Opines Seiler, “As if Congress weren't made up of anything but liars!”
Okay, kids, he also has some advice: “Never talk to the government–Congress, police, sheriffs, whomever.”

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
