    Hey, some of the New York times top award winning reporters went for years making everything up. On who had won awards for his personal articles on what he saw after the huricanes along the gulf coast – he was only caught after someone realized he was describing stuff from photos taken elsewhere — and the fact he never filed for any travel expences.

    So I think this young reporter has a bright, possibly Pulitzer winning career ahead of them.

    ;)
