Jayson Blair: What is most amazing?

What is more amazing–that the NY Times devoted a front page, meticulously researched article to detailing Jayson Blair’s obsessive deceptions and frauds during this time as a writer at the paper–or the slopy, self-serving journalism Blair engaged in?
And what’s with folk at the NY Times? Seems like Jonathan Landman was the only one who wanted to move the guy out.
And finally, how sad is this? Watching a promising journalist self-destruct his career is heart-breaking.
