I worked for a news department in a radio station many years back where it was expected to pull an occasional quote out of your ass to embellish the product. Why yes, we had a fake traffic copter, too.

"'I looked at my wife. She looked back at me. We had the same guilty thought - Veterans Day - and we thought nothing about it except as a long weekend on the Cape until we saw that,' said Chipman, 46, a Boston resident. 'You live in the city and sometimes you forget about things like this - about things still mattering to people,' he said."

1. The stories with suspect sourcing were typically lighter fare

(So, stuff that doesn't matter and no one cares about)

2. How did this happen? Or more important, how did we allow this to happen? It's a question we cannot satisfactorily answer.

See #1. Problem solved.

How am I so much smarter than the combined staff of this newspaper? Maybe they should do an expose on that.

This is why I couldn't be a journalist. I discovered in school that my grades in english courses improved substantially when I started making shiat up on papers. My teachers didn't check my sources, they just ran it through google or whatever they use to detect plagarism. My lies were my own, completely original, and apparently more compelling to read than when I used real information.

The ironic thing is this: that kind of busywork is assigned in order to teach due diligence in research and source-citing, but my teachers weren't demonstrating due diligence any more than I was. If they had, I would've been caught.

Bah, my university essays had innumerable fictional books in the bibliography. "Douglas Wallace" wrote about everything from postmodern architecture to Elizabethan drama, depending on what quote invention an essay required. Usually he was published on university presses or journals that have a very patchy electronic databases.

You want to go hunt for that article on "Pre-Roman Animal Sexuality" professor, in the sub-library basement with all the 70s hard-copies of the Classics History Journal? Be my guest sir.

I find it highly unusual anyone would bother to check newspaper stories for accuracy any more.

I do not believe anything I see in the media at face value, I do not know anyone who does.

At least, if she has proven she can lie persuasively in the newspaper, she has qualified herself for a high paying job on television.
