Jayson Blair: Birds of a Feather, Publish Together

Just moments, okay perhaps days, after Michael Viner announce his publishing company would publish a tell-all by the “very honest” Blair, the very honest Viner has filed for bankruptcy on the heels of a court decision. According to the Times, New Millennium, Viner’s company, packaged a short story anthology in a misleading way, without the permission of the editor and a best-selling author, who retaliated by suing him. He’s lost, and now folks are wondering what will happen to that $500,000 advance Blair was supposed to receive.
