 Jack Stern - The Great Pretender
If Stern was never in the armed forces in the Far East, it becomes obvious that the stories of training with the great masters of the Far East is just one more lie.
In sounds kind of redundant to say he was never in the CIA and never served with Air America.

 The Great Pretender?
His methods were, to say the least, unorthodox, and far from Timesian: spending hours with sources without a notebook, writing epic-length articles with barely a quotation in them.
But Michael Finkel knew how to tell a story, and he told some great ones for The New York Times Magazine -- until last week, in an unprecedented editors' note, the paper revealed that the title character of his November 18 story, "Is Youssouf Malé a Slave?," was actually a composite of several young men.
Finkel, 33, was fired, leaving some to wonder if the Times had been too taken with his (too-hard-to-check) articles from such far-flung locales as the Ivory Coast, Gaza, and Haiti, where he famously had to be rescued from a refugee boat.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: The Great Pretender, Freddie Mercury, CD
From all appearances, The Great Pretender would seem to be a collection of tracks from Freddie Mercury's Mr.
And that it is, but what is not made clear from looking at the track listing is that almost every song on this compilation has been remixed, sometimes quite drastically, from the original version.
The two pieces that Mercury recorded for the Time musical ("Time" and "In My Defense") have not been altered too much, and these hard-to-find ballads and the cover of "The Great Pretender" are the major selling points of the album, given the fine, dramatic performances given by Mercury.
