Fairey Pleads Guilty to Lying

It has been some time since I've posted about Shepard Fairey, mostly because the matter of his dishonesty was wending its way through the judicial system. I noticed this story at The New York Times reporting that Fairey has indeed plead guilty to - let's be gentle - lying to cover up his use of a copyrighted image as the basis for the famous Obama campaign poster. The nice folks at The Times hew to their time-honored propensity to hide behind euphemisms, saying that Fairey "pleaded guilty Friday to a charge stemming from his misconduct in trying to bolster claims in a lawsuit." Nice. With luck this will be the final time I ever feel the need to write anything about the man.
