Full Title = A Fragile Trust: Plagiarism, Power, and Jayson Blair at the New York Times

*************************

In 2003, New York Times reporter Jayson Blair was fired for plagiarism. As press pounced on the scandal, it was quickly clear that many people knew Blair was “in trouble,” but no one actively intervened until the damage–to Blair AND to the Times–was irreversible.

Filmmaker Samantha Grant does a good job of description, but she never really delves as deep as she should into complex questions of causality. (JLH: 3/5)
