Here's a twist 

Atrios' snarkiness is right on line here. A "trusted" reporter for USA Today was busted for making shit up. However, unlike Blair, he is white and an Evangelical Christian. I would not only assume as Atrios does that:

Why oh why do we have affirmative action for white Christian evangelical men? Why oh why do newspaper editors let their biases about such people cloud their judgment? I'm sure the brothers Hack, Glenn and Mickey, will spend weeks discussing how this guy's race and religion allowed him to get away with things that other journalists couldn't get away with.

but I would also assume newsrooms across the country will be shaken, people will be fired, this guy will be blacklisted, and everyone will eye white, Christian men with a little more skepticism.
