Jayson Blair Gets It

      You may remember Jayson Blair, the New York Times reporter who made stuff up, got caught at it, and lost his career.  Rathergate.com decided to ask him what he thought about the mess at CBS.

      He turns out to be quite sensible and articulate.  He sees that the story wasn't very important in the first place:
He [Bush] has three-and-one-half years and two wars as President and if can’t make a judgment on that, as opposed to his personal life three decades ago, then there might as well not be elections.
      He also notes that this whole mess happened in part because CBS has institutional flaws.  Sensibly, he calls on the network to find them and fix them.

      Unfortunately for CBS, they seem determined at the moment to not do this.  Too bad.
