Just what is "" - journalism, or political advocacy?

Spot earlier wrote about the strange case of allowing a Republican operative - Cyndy Brucato - to shill for Tom Emmer. Today she's back at it - only this time for the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce. Unremarked in Brucato's posts is the fact that she is (or recently was) a paid consultant to the Chamber of Commerce. Is she being paid by Emmer? We don't know. What we do know is that Brucato has tainted what was becoming a good journalistic brand. Whatever Brucato is peddling it is distinctly not journalism.

UPDATE: Minnpost has added a disclosure about Brucato's work for the Chamber.
