Reader comment on item: Is the Solution to Hire More Muslim Journalists?

I recall a poll made in 2002 (cannot find the URL), where Americans were asked, in their thoughts, in terms of integrity, honest and trust, in 49 exposed common professions, obviously represented by professionals they see/know, which professions were the most honorable and which ones the most deplorable.

From the first place as the most honorable you could see doctors, nurses. Engineers.....

Number 48 or almost the most deplorable: Lawyers.

Number 49: Journalists along with Car Dealers.
