So the story I remember most ( I will eventually think of the profs name), is that LBJ was just escalating Viet Nam and he was on Air Force One with his press secy, of course, and the most important of the press corps aboard, flying somewhere, and here, in the depths of the night when everyone was trying to allow the president to sleep, or so they thought, here comes LBJ, drunk as a skunk, sloshing his drink in his hand, stumbling down the aisle in the back where the press corps was, shouting, "I am the KING! I am the f**king KING!!"
This example was taught in class as a really serious ethical dilemma for a responsible journalist since a person who is in elected office forfeits all rights that subject normal people to privacy laws.
But ohhh he had stories.
