And so it goes. New York Times reporter Rick Bragg has been suspended for two weeks. The Columbia Journalism Review website has the details.

Here's what I don't get. Bragg is a Pulitzer winner. He was working with an intern -- an intern who actually went to the scene and did the bulk of the reporting. Ethics aside, why wasn't Bragg magnanimous enough to give the kid a byline? Hell, why didn't he put the kid's name first?
