National Journal copy editor not a millionaire

Tonia Moore is not a millionaire. The National Journal copy editor incorrectly answered a question about the origin of Universal Studios' name on an episode of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" broadcast Friday, ending a run that began with a show broadcast the day before.

The piece, Fournier says, was his wife's idea, and he'd originally conceived it as a book proposal. The best way to get a book agent, he thought, was to write a magazine article. He first turned in the piece to Adam B. Kushner, then the magazine's deputy editor, a couple months ago, Fournier says. (more...)
