This is really pissing me off

NOW, Jayson Blair is handling coveted assignments from Esquire and Jane.

Where’s the irony? This in from the New York Post…….


“He’ll be reviewing the new Stephen Glass movie for Esquire and writing about workplace pressures for Jane.”

Why am I so offended? Why are publications employing these liars?

I’m pissed because it makes my job so much more difficult. If Joe Public starts reading everything with a grain of salt, then what’s to stop a reporter from slacking off (because there’s no penalty for getting the record wrong anyway)? What will happen if they stop going that extra mile to verify facts, or contact the source, or publish an accurate quote?
