I've long shared in the outraged of the Jayson Blair scandal, but this strikes me as a tad fatuous:

[One of Raines's remarks] underscored the magnitude of the many news stories that he and Mr. Boyd had led the staff through in just 21 months: the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon; the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; the explosion of the space shuttle Columbia, and, ultimately and most recently, the exposition and investigation into how Mr. Blair had committed the equivalent of journalistic fraud on at least 36 occasions since October.
Which of these things doesn't belong here? No, not the space shuttle blowing up....
