Manic Monday Bonus--It's About Ethics In Journalism!

And while we're discussing the resemblance of Silver Age plotlines to some of today's comics, perhaps we should acknowledge this panel.

Magic Silver Age science turned Perry White and Comissioner Gordon into super-villains. Don't worry, they got better.

Perry had earlier planned on writing a series about "Superman and Batman's toughest foes." Now, though?

That's right, Perry--a journalist can't write stories about themselves--it would be unethical!

Right, Clark Kent? Right? Hello, Clark...?

From World's Finest #159 (1966) as reprinted n World's Finest #227 (1975)

I suspect Perry was less concerned with ethics than embarrassment.
