Van Doren speaks (ok so I'm six months late, but whatever)

I'm not sure how I missed the New Yorker piece by Charles Van Doren from the June 28th issue, but fortunately my good friend Manly Dan Mangan of NY Post fame brought it to my attention.

If the name Charles Van Doren rings a bell, that's because he was at the center of the infamous quiz show scandals of the late '50s. Van Doren turned his star turn on the rigged game show into a gig on the Today Show and international fame -- which included a cover story in Time Magazine -- but was ultimately outed as a fraud and shamed into silence for nearly 50 years. 

He kept his public silence through the 1990s, even as he was immortalized in the move Quiz Show, where he was portrayed by Ralph Fiennes.  It's one of the great movies of the past few decades; if you haven't seen it, I urge to get your Netflix on.

With this New Yorker piece, Van Doren finally tells his side of the story.  It's a fascinating read.
