Setting the Record Straight:
The New York Times reports an extraordinary investigation into the misreportings of former reporter Jayson Blair in today's paper. A shorter version ran in The Miami Herald today and probably in other papers, too; but the original article is much, much longer. In addition, there's a summary of the charges and and editor's note and apology. There's also an email address: retrace@ for readers to message Times executives with information about not yet found errors. A sad story.
Thank goodness The Times has researchers on the team investigating the stories. Wonder how much use Jayson made of the Times' research staff?
