News scandal hits paper

The New York Times, it appears, has been hit by a scandal of unprecedented proportions – one of its journalists faked his reports about the war in Iraq, among others, plagiarising an article published by another newspaper.
It’s disturbing how the sources he claimed to have interviewed didn’t bother complaining to the paper but merely shrugged it off as a fact of life. Read more from the Guardian, or the New York Times itself!
