Jayson Blair, still casting blame elsewhere

Folio Magazine’s Dylan Stableford uncovers fabricator/journalistic pariah Jayson Blair’s latest gig: a column for “BP Hope” magazine, a publication serving the 2.5 million Americans afflicted with bipolar disorder.

In the column, Blair cops to having the condition and describes the pressures of “trying to accomplish my job” (and, according to Stableford, a recovery that includes “medication and speaking engagements”).

“Like Icarus, I soared like an eagle,” Blair writes, “but fell with a shattered wing.” Actually, Icarus fell to earth with a melted wing but why quibble over details? We know you won’t.
