Why did you do it?" The movie opens with that question. In response, Jayson Blair makes a joke. "This one again," he mutters, rolling his eyes in mock consternation at the predictability of it. But predictable as it is and as long as he's had to ponder it, Mr. Blair still ends up punting. "I don't have a good answer for the question," he acknowledges. "A Fragile Trust: Plagiarism, Power and Jayson Blair at the New York Times" -- it premieres this week on PBS; check your local listings -- reintroduces us to the central figure in one of the great media scandals of all time, the one-time wunderkind who lied and plagiarized his way through a career on what is arguably the greatest stage in American journalism, The New York Times.

Police did not specify the amount. Police charged Edwards, of the 1700 block of Richfield Drive, with being an accessory after the fact.

ATLANTA -- The Orioles wasted no time agreeing to terms yesterday with the first of their two first-round draft choices, signing high school catcher Jayson Werth to a deal worth $850,000 to $900,000.Werth, the 22nd overall pick of the draft, was not expected to be difficult to sign. The Orioles are still pursuing their second first-round pick, Colorado two-sport star Darnell McDonald, who already has rejected an opening bid of $2 million. Unlike McDonald, Werth had made no secret of wanting to join the Orioles though he had signed a scholarship to attend the University of Georgia.

IN LESS THAN a year, two major national newspapers have devoted pages of their main news sections to special reports-not on the war on terrorism or the war in Iraq or the presidential race - but on their own egregious mistakes. In May, it was The New York Times, one of the country's most respected newspapers, explaining how reporter Jayson Blair had deceived readers. This month, it was USA Today, the nation's most widely circulated newspaper, explaining how foreign correspondent Jack Kelley invented stories from locales around the globe.

News executives at once applauded and winced yesterday after seeing USA Today's detailed account of the dishonest reporting - including repeated instances of plagiarism and fabrication - by former foreign correspondent Jack Kelley. They applauded, they said, because such honesty is desperately needed to win back the trust of the public. But the scandal undoubtedly will reinforce the mistrust many Americans already feel toward the media, they added. "It's definitely one more troubling scene in a long-running movie," said Sandra Mims Rowe, editor of the Portland Oregonian.

In a new memoir in which he strikes an alternately resentful and contrite tone, former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair accepts blame for his disgrace last spring, when he was forced to resign from the newspaper following charges of plagiarism. He also details frequent cocaine use, mental illness and compulsive attempts to curry favor by playing office politics. "In the end-justifies-the-means environment I worked in, I had grown accustomed to lying," Blair writes in the opening chapter.
