A Fragile Trust

About the Film

A FRAGILE TRUST is a shocking and fascinating look at Jayson Blair’s downward spiral through the hallowed halls of the New York Times’ news department. “The Blair Affair,” which coincided with the trajectory of newsrooms going digital, not only rocked the Paper of Record, but shook the foundations of journalism and unleashed questions of ethics, accountability, race, representation, and power in media. Called “the most infamous serial plagiarist of our time,” Blair gives candid and telling testimonies, reads from his book, and reveals what he is doing now in Samantha Grant’s not-to-be-missed, illuminating first feature.

About the Director

Samantha Grant (Director/Producer) creates thought-provoking, character-driven documentaries that are solidly rooted in journalism. Through her company GUSH productions, Grant has created content for clients including MTV, ABC, PBS, CNN, NPR, FRONTLINE, FRONTLINE/World, and Al Jazeera International. In 2007, Grant was named a Carnegie/Knight fellow and in 2011, Sam was named a BAVC MediaMaker Fellow, where she began developing the Educational Game DECISIONS ON DEADLINE as a companion project to A FRAGILE TRUST. When she’s not shooting or producing indie docs, Grant is lecturing at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and Stanford's Knight Fellowship program.
