In Bed with Head Executives
The editor of the Harvard Business Review learned a hard lesson recently: Don't sleep with your sources. (I'm overstating the case, but it's a lesson worth learning.) While reporting a Q&A with former GE chair Jack Welch, Suzy Wetlaufer reportedly became romantically involved with her interviewee. HBR scrapped the less-than-objective article and assigned other staffers to hurriedly re-report the piece for its scheduled February publication.

Thanks to Jim Romenesko's Media News.
