COOKING THE BOOKS CERTAINLY DIDN’T BEGIN WITH JAYSON BLAIR: Jack Kelly, 43, had a 21 year career with USA Today and was five times nominated for a Pulitzer Prize before resigning in January “after admitting he conspired with a translator to mislead editors looking into the veracity of his reporting”, according to AP.

Their article adds, “USA Today said Friday that an examination of the work of journalist Jack Kelley found strong evidence that the newspaper’s former star foreign correspondent had fabricated substantial portions of at least eight major stories”.
