Jayson Blair's an amateur by comparison
"[Jessica Lynch's] story is one of the most stunning pieces of news management ever conceived."
--A BBC investigation that found much of the story about the heroic capture of POW Jessica Lynch was not true. According to the report, Iraqi doctors gave her special treatment and tried unsuccessfully to return her to U.S. troops. To see the story, go to http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/correspondent/3028585.stm. For a lighter take, check out: www.salon.com/news/feature/2003/05/16/pvt_lynch/index_np.html
