  USA Today kills ludicrous Ann Coulter story! - Salon.com
The second talked-about misfire was USA Today's decision to spike as unusable a column it had commissioned from radical right-wing pundit Ann Coulter.
USA Today spokesman Steven Anderson stands by the paper's decision, telling Salon: "We felt she would have been a suitable person" for the daily.
USA Today editorial page editor Brian Gallagher, defending the choice, told a reporter Coulter "was a voice from [the conservative] side with standing and visibility." Notice how credibility was not a requirement.

 USA Today scandal -- -- baltimoresun.com
The top editor of USA Today announced her early and immediate retirement yesterday, days before the expected public release of a critical report detailing how the paper's former foreign correspondent Jack Kelley was able to deceive editors and readers in print for years.
USA Today reported yesterday that its former star correspondent Jack Kelley fabricated major elements of stories filed from abroad, plagiarized passages in other instances and then concocted elaborate ruses to conceal his transgressions.

 Online NewsHour | Credibility in Question
In the end, the USA Today investigation concluded Kelley made up all or part of 20 stories that appeared in the paper, lifted more than 100 passages and quotes from other, uncredited sources and billed the newspaper for thousands of dollars for translators and assistants that they say they never received.
Following the paper's initial investigation in 2003, USA Today chose to treat the investigation as "a confidential personnel matter." The newspaper's editors had made their decision, telling Kelley on Jan. 5, 2004 that he could resign in the next two days or be fired.
The paper's editor, Karen Jurgensen, also said initially that USA Today would not be correcting any of Kelley's stories "at this time," leading many in the media to question how fair the newspaper had treated an almost universally liked reporter and whether Kelley was actually culpable of falsifying his stories.

USA TODAY not only delivers the morning newspaper, it provides the most up-to-date news, weather, and sports scores, in color, to every corner of the nation—including advertising content specific to each region, all before your first cup of coffee.
The result was a seamless transition from their previous network to DIRECWAY that continues USA TODAY’s tradition of delivering fast, accurate, and late-breaking news to everyone’s doorstep.
A critical component of USA TODAY’s business model is the ability to sell “single copy” issues—meaning that instead of driving revenue through subscriptions, roughly half of the two million-plus papers produced each day are sold straight off news stands.

The U.S. counterterrorism official, who has access to all intelligence on the terrorist group, told USA TODAY this week that officials have no specific evidence to indicate how or when al-Qaeda might try to launch a massive strike on U.S. soil.
But, the official said, interviews with al-Qaeda detainees, intercepts of communications from suspected operatives and other sources have yielded evidence that Osama bin Laden's network still has a command structure and a determination to launch an attack that might rival the suicide hijackings.
The officials say there are only a few people in the USA who could be classified as suspected al-Qaeda operatives capable of carrying out an attack.
