Week 14

Where's Janet Cooke now? <<For a while after the incident Cooke worked as a salesclerk in Washington. She married a Washington lawyer and briefly moved to Paris with him, but the marriage failed and she returned in 1996. She moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan and became a salesgirl again. Cooke was the subject of an interview by Mike Sager, appearing in GQ magazine in June of 1996. Sager's article was republished in an anthology Scary Monsters and Super Freaks, 2003. The movie rights for her story were reported to have been purchased for $1.6 million dollars by Columbia Tri-Star Pictures to be divided up between Cooke, Sager, and their agents, with Cooke getting 55%. The film has not yet been produced.

Playwright Tracey Scott Wilson wrote a play in 2001, entitled "The Story," which is purportedly based on the topic of journalistic hoax inspired by the Janet Cooke story and that of another journalistic interloper, Stephen Glass formerly of The New Republic magazine.>> From Wikipedia. I may ask you to edit this. Isn't it awful?
