The only explanation would be if the journalist said "I'm just doing my job". Which it seems he did, then Ken was justifiied. It is a crappy defence, which would show blatent hypocrisy from the journalist, trying to assign moral responsibility for his actions to someone higher up the chain. A bit like the Nuremburg defence. But if this is the case, why hasn't this context been provided?
