Woodward a Hired Hack?

I'm not a professional journalist, but when I was in J-school one of the things that was stressed was objectivity. The job of the journalist was to report events, not take creative license with them. After watching Bob Woodward on Larry King Live on Fitzmas Eve I have come to the conclusion that he can no longer be considered a journalist. He's a novelist and a hired writer for the White House. I haven't read his books, but I hear his fiction improves with each attempt.

RJ Eskow at The Huffinton Post does a great job breaking down Woodward's performance on LKL.
