Jayson Blair's New Job: Life Coach

So the blind can lead the blind. Jayson Blair, the New York Times reporter who resigned in 2003 after being caught plagiarizing and fabricating articles, is now a certified life coach. For the last two years he has been successfully working at one of the most respected mental health practices in northern Virginia, according to the Associated Press. "People say, 'Wait a minute. You're a life coach?' That makes no sense,'" said Blair. "Then they think about my life experiences and what I've been through and they say 'Wait a minute. It does make sense.'" His boss agrees. "He can relate to patients just beautifully," explained the psychologist who hired Blair.
