PBS Independent Lens to air A FRAGILE TRUST May 5

Samantha Grant of the UC Berkeley School of Journalism addresses a difficult topic in the profession: plagiarism.
In A FRAGILE TRUST the subject is New York Times reporter Jayson Blair. Grant’s film unwinds a documentary thriller and it is as painful an examination of Mr. Blair’s deeds as it is the state of large institutional  newspapers in a time when the unsinkable fourth estate is sailing in a sea of icebergs.
