from the daily caller:
Stephen Glass was a hot young writer in the early 1990s at the liberal magazine The New Republic. It turned out that in most of his articles he simply made stuff up. He wrote that they had designed a portable urinal so that bondsmen wouldnt have to leave the trading floor. He accused CPAC-goers of drug abuse and rape. He invented false churches, including the Church of George Herbert Walker Christ. He was a novelist posing as a journalist. And the editors ran at least 27 bogus stories he had written.
But he also got an HBO documentary.
