Media reporter Christian Vachon reconstructs how male escort Mike Jones pulled the rug out from under the Denver alt-weekly and an NBC affiliate. Before giving his seismic scoop to a local radio station, Jones talked to both Westword Editor Patricia Calhoun and Paula Woodward, an investigative reporter with KUSA-TV, but balked at going public. Vachon calls the episode "a cautionary [tale] for every journalist who has ever wondered when she has enough to go with a story."
