Former editor and reporter Jayson Blair resigned from the New York Times over ten years ago after being caught engaging in a laundry list of journalistic malpractice, including plagiarism and fabrication.
With the above tweet we think Blair may have stumbled onto a way to resuscitate his career with any number of mainstream media outlets by pitching himself as an “Expert in Questionable Reporting.” However, we’re not sure if potential MSM clients would hire Blair to help spot and stop shoddy reporting, or perpetuate it.
There was one question that came to our minds: “Is that really Jayson Blair’s Twitter account?” This is as close as we could come to convincing evidence:
@DanAmira yes. Who would pretend to be me?
