Scott Templeton is an ambitious general assignments reporter at The Baltimore Sun
Templeton is a young reporter who allows his extreme ambition to lead him to falsify stories. He has previously worked at the Wichita Eagle and the Kansas City Star. Templeton sees his current job as a general assignments reporter at The Baltimore Sun as a stepping stone to The Washington Post or The New York Times. His prose is reflective of his personality and is often overwrought and exaggerated. Templeton's style is welcomed by Managing Editor Thomas Klebanow and Executive Editor James Whiting.
