Testify, Brother Pitts!
It's been nearly four months since the scandal broke. Four months since Jack Kelley, former star foreign correspondent for USA Today, was found to have lied his way through his professional life for the last 13 years.
He lied about where he had been, what he had seen, who he had talked to, what they had said. He lied so much I'm only half convinced "Jack Kelley" is his real name.
Yet you, my colleagues, have not asked the most important question:
What does this mean for the future of white journalism?
