Jayson Blair cashes in on fame

The story about plagiarism in Dagens Nyheter has engaged the Swedish part of the blogosphere this fall. Although the Peter Borgström case is not entirely identical to the Jayson Blair story, I find this very interesting. Appearently, the infamous Blair is cashing in on his “fame” and charges $3,000 for an appearance at the mass communications department at Winston-Salem State University (a “portion” of this honorarium will go to a mental health organization).

Will Borgström appear at JMK? Not a chance. But maybe he should.
