Because, see, taking $55,000 from Enron to sit on a do-nothing board while penning paeans to those corporate fraudsters in nooooooo way compromised his journalistic ethics.

But leaving the hallowed confines of his NYTimes office to commune in person with his fellow anti-plutocrats at Kamp Alinsky would just…cross the line.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL:

Some readers have been asking me to go make a speech at one of the OWS demonstrations. If you think about it, however, you’ll see why I can’t.

I’ve been granted the enormous privilege of expounding my own views twice a week in the world’s greatest newspaper. I try to make the best use of that privilege, doing all I can to get the truth across and also advocating for what I believe to be the right policies. There are, however, some restrictions that come with the privilege; one of them is not crossing the line between advocate and activist. And there are good reasons for drawing that line.

Such scrupulous self-sacrifice! Order him up another Nobel Prize.

A Twitter follower reacts: “Smug, self-righteous, unintentionally ironic and cowardly. Classic Krugman.”
