USA Today reported yesterday that its former star correspondent Jack Kelley fabricated major elements of stories filed from abroad, plagiarized passages in other instances and then concocted elaborate ruses to conceal his transgressions. The newspaper documented the extent of Kelley's deceptions in a front-page article yesterday and additional coverage that consumed two full pages. "It is indeed a sad and shameful betrayal of public trust," said USA Today founding editorial director John Seigenthaler, who is heading a three-person committee charged with reviewing Kelley's 21-year tenure at the paper.

The editor and publisher of USA Today announced yesterday that the national newspaper would launch an independent review of all the articles written by former star foreign correspondent Jack Kelley. The review will extend to "all related matters that the committee conducting the examination may choose to explore," editor Karen Jurgensen and publisher Craig Moon said in a written statement. Kelley was forced to resign earlier this month after editors confronted him with evidence of his efforts to deceive them during an earlier, aborted inquiry into several of his articles.
