This speaks volumes for the right as a whole.

A reporter for the American Spectator--who says he "infiltrated" a group of Washington, D.C., protesters "in order to mock and undermine" their cause in his magazine--claims he helped incite a riot at the National Air and Space Museum on Saturday afternoon and was pepper-sprayed in the process.

The right wing just can't stand others peacefully protesting, so they have to make the movement look bad... at any cost.

According to Howley, he was aggressive in the march on the museum because, "in the absence of ideological uniformity ... their only chance, as I saw it, was to push the envelope and go bold.

More important question, from a journalism standpoint: Did Howley--in apparently inciting a riot to produce a story--cross an ethical line?

Oh yeah... the right is VERY concerned about ethical standards.
