Editors note on Reporter's fraud

NY Times 5/11
In the Editor's note today:

Editors' Note

Ten days ago, Jayson Blair resigned as a reporter for The New York Times
after the discovery that he had plagiarized parts of an article on April
26 about the Texas family of a soldier missing in Iraq. An article on Page
1 today recounts a chain of falsifications and plagiarism that unraveled
when The Times began an inquiry into that Texas article." ... Regarding
database concerns the Editor indicated:

"In online databases that include copy from The Times, cautionary notices
will be attached to the faulty articles in coming days"
