Anyone remember Howard Kohn who was an investigative reporter for the Free Press back in the 70's?
He went on to fame and fortune with Rolling Stone magazine and wrote a book about Karen Silkwood.
He left here under a cloud because he faked a story of his own kidnapping.

I only remember Kohn as the reporter who faked his own kidnapping for the Freep. Sometime in the 1960s, I think. I dug up the clippings for a journalism class, still have them somewhere.
