Becky Purser, is a reporter for The Macon Telegraph, made up sources and fabricated quotes for the publication, even going so far as to create a false police allegations in order to impersonate a black males. Her poor journalistic practices were revealed in 2013, when the site was forced to make severe corrections to four of her articles, and fully retract another.
According to The Macon Telegraph editor-in-chief, an investigation into Purser's reporting turned up three instances in which quotes were attributed to people who said they had not been interviewed. In other instances, quotes were attributed to individuals we could not reach, who could not remember speaking with her, or whose identities could not be confirmed. In her reporting Purser also used quotes that we cannot verify from unnamed people whom she claimed to have encountered at public events. Purser went to great lengths to deceive her editors, creating an email account to impersonate a source and lying about her reporting methods.
