On Friday, The New York Times suspended star reporter Rick Bragg for two weeks, news first reported on the Web site run by the Columbia Journalism Review and confirmed by several newsroom sources, who said they first heard about the suspension Friday afternoon. The suspension of Bragg, a Pulitzer Prize winner, comes on the heels of the Jayson Blair plagiarism and fabrication scandal, which seems likely to roil the newspaper’s newsroom for some time to come.
