Question of the Day

Tuesday's Question of the Day asked … In 1974, this movie star believed his real mother was his sister, and was only stripped of this illusion when an inquisitive Time magazine journalist revealed it to him during a phone interview. Who was the actor? That would be the great Jack Nicholson!

Your question of the day for today is ... In the 1998 Vanity Fair article that later inspired a film, Buzz Bissinger wrote that this infamous journalist "established himself as the Darth Vader of Detail" as a fact checker. Then "Star Wars" actor Hayden Christensen played this journo in the film, making the movie that much more perfect. Who was this "Darth Vader" of journalism?
