Another Jayson Blair Scandal in New York Media
It's at The Village Voice and involves Nick Sylvester, Senior Associate Editor, who admits fabricating a bar scene described in the magazine's cover story this week. Sylvester has been suspended, the magazine removed the story from its web site and a full probe of the piece has been initiated.
Sylvester said the bar scene represented "a composite of specific anecdotes" related to him by his sources. Is this a variation on the "fake but true" formulation of Mary Mapes and the CBS Bush National Guard documents forgery?
