Putney Joining Investment Bank

This just in from the Miami Herald website: Channel 10's Michael Putney has accepted a job as a media consultant for Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services, an investment bank.

The kicker: He's keeping his job at Channel 10 and op-ed column for the Herald while he works to promote Ladenburg Thalmann to the media. That doesn't sound kosher to me. In my view, you're either a flack or you're a journalist and never the twain shall meet.
