Jonah and the Wail

David Carr in tomorrow's NYT takes a long look at Jonah Lehrer and his journo misdeeds, and how the Web can make you, break you, then rehabilitate you.  Mentions Fareed a bit.  On Lehrer:  "He has a well-followed Twitter account replete with a link to his now checkered blog for The New Yorker. He may have put fake words in the mouth of Bob Dylan, slipped recycled content past one of the most fact-checked franchises in the land and popularized science in a way that distorted it. But he’s not going away. He will come back because he hasn’t actually left."
