I write in reference to Mr. Abbi’s recent leaking of Frank Luntz’s comments.

When at Penn, I took a course from Al Hunt of Bloomberg News who taught me the basics of journalistic integrity. We were taught to respect a speaker when he or she said a topic was “off the record.” We were always striving to make our university proud.

Franklin once said that “Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.” Next time, when in doubt, try being useless. Because dangerous and dreadful doesn’t serve anybody any good.
