Blair's simple guide to alchemy

73 creative articles with contents from different publications; a few hundred calls; a couple well-placed connections in the higher echelons; 1 accusation; 1 confession and you are all set to achieve stardom. And all this mostly from the comforts of your home. Jayson Blair showed the way. His true lies fetched him just enough for his upkeep. Now his behind-the-scenes story on what led to those lies will let him retire at 27.

Creative indeed! First you lie, and then you sell the story on why you lied! Impressive! Heres where the money is folks - get a Masters in Journalism; better still, get Frank Abagnale (of "Catch me if you can" fame) put together a certificate for you!
