What happens to journalists after they resign in disgrace from their journalism jobs? Where do they go, and what do they do?

Judy Miller, for one, joined a think tank and occasionally writes for The Daily Beast. Janet Cooke sold the rights to her story to a film studio. Stephen Glass, who has nothing if not a penchant for flair, went to law school, wrote a “biographical novel” (entitled, aptly, The Fabulist), and joined an LA-area comedy troupe.


So what’s Jayson Blair, The New York Times’s own Fabulist, doing these days? Apparently, advising the wayward about how to live fulfilling and ethical lives. Yep: Jayson Blair is now…a life coach.
