He wasn't a journalist - he was a PR flack - when he got paid by Greenpeace
he stopped becoming a journalist.

Journalists take a chance in doing what they do. There ARE lines. You'll
note that journalists who did "hidden camera" reports when they signed on as
employees ended up being sued - and the firms who sued won. That was the
price of the reportage.

If this guy were working for the New York Times he'd have been a journalist.
But he wasn't, he was an agent of Greenpeace. If they conspired, he
conspired by association.
