Classy Example of Reporting -- and Keeping your Word

Here's a comment from NRO today.

Re: Larry Kudlow [Ramesh Ponnuru]

The discussion lasted about an hour and a half. The official transcript of the on-the-record portion of it was 325 words long. We are allowed, however, to report on the atmospherics. So I can say that the president was at times combative, refused to get drawn very far into this year's races, does not at all seem worn down or defeated, and was very candid—and that I wish I could say more.

My point is that Kudlow shows a rare and honorable trait. He gave his word to the President that some comments would be "off the record"...and he kept his word.

How many of the NYTimes or WAPost lefties can we say this of? Not many...
