If only he'd not been blah, he could have kept making shiat up, possibly been a right-wing rising star with a horrible coke habit.

I hate to sound bitter but this guy had problems as an editor of his College Newspaper, but he still gets hired by the NY Times, the most prestigous paper in the US,  commits the cardinal sin of journalism and get fired for it, and now he's making heavy coin as a Life Coach?is that even a thing?   How does this guy keep failing upwards while the rest of us slave away 9-5 for next to nothing?

People who think they need a life coach are most likely gullible enough to think he's atoned for his mistakes, and that alone makes him more qualified to help them.

Same way he's been falling up the whole time.  He's got charisma, he's an excellent bullshiater, and he knows how to brownnose.

Describes a lot of 'successful' people I've known.

fta:  "The lessons about how people can fall down with good intentions."

He still doesn't get it.
He didn't fall down (as if it were an accident).

He deliberately committed fraud against his employee and the public.

People who fail catastrophically have at least one thing in common with people who succeed beyond their wildest dreams, and it's a thing they don't share with the generic 90% of the common person.  People who fail or succeed at huge endeavors made, at the very least, an attempt at something difficult.  Since most people don't even try, people are fascinated with the experiences of people who at least make the attempt, regardless of how big their failures are.

Remember we have a VP who is also a plagiarist and makes things up.
It is the cool thing to do if you are a liberal.

Like repeatedly giving zero shiats about actual journalism while engaged in, y'know, journalism?

If that's something to admire, I'll pass.

She was banging the drum and writing articles that Saddam had WMD.
Her "sourcing" of the information violated NYTs standards.

Its really easy now with Wikipedia.  Put in a date, and it'll tell you stuff that happened on that date.

Although to your point... this particular factoid isn't on there.
