It isn't easy to get a good job in journalism. If you happen to land one of those good jobs – for example, as a staff writer at the New York Times – you might be someone that others could look to for career advice. If, however, you are someone that lost that job in public disgrace because of a history of serial fabulism, career advice might not be your forte.
I'm not sure what else to say about this because my comedy instincts say "try not to make jokes about inherently funny situations; let the truth do the heavy lifting."
So there it is: Jayson Blair, notorious fuck-up, will tell you how you can improve your own life. I think we've found the only job easier to hang out a shingle for than "legal ethics expert."
