Comments: Just Passing Through

Are you serious? Kelley's fakery isn't being covered in the blogosphere? Geez, I can't seem to get away from it. :)

Saw a few minutes of the state memorial this morning on EuroNews; very moving.

I haven't seen much about it in the mainstream press, either: some in responsible outlets like NPR (What are they thinking over there, I wonder? Whatever they do next better be really, really good.), but nothing like the Jayson Blair implosion.

I have theories about that: second case fatigue; no affirmative action debate; USA Today, for all its circulation, doesn't have the "newspaper of record" tag to live up to, and it's pretty non-partisan (I haven't read it much I admit) so there's no partisan ax to grind.

But if this keeps up, they're going to have to institute a peer-review system for journalists.....
