    NY Times columnist admits using blogger's words

    NEW YORK – New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has admitted to using a paragraph virtually word-for-word from a prominent liberal blogger without attribution.

    Dowd acknowledged the error in an e-mail to The Huffington Post on Sunday, the Web site reported. The Times corrected her column online to give proper credit for the material to Talking Points Memo editor Josh Marshall.

    The error appeared in Dowd's Sunday column, in which she criticized the Bush administration's use of interrogation methods in the run-up to the Iraq war.

    W's response.....

    She (dowd) has always tried to be as famous as Coulter but could never come close, with all the problems that left wing rag already has the last thing they need is another "Bush Hater" who cheats, they should dump & disown her quick.

    "B. Hussein Obama"...tee, hee...tee hee...I get it! Obama is just like a despotic tyrant who is a Muslim...tee, hee.

    That's true, though. Only Dems are plagerists. That's a fact.

    The funny thing was that she was the one who really outed Joe Biden back in 1988. The irony is delicious :singing:

    The "error"???

    So... is she being fired, or not?

    Ron Borges was fired for plagiarism, why isn't this writer getting fired?

    On the other hand, Coldplay stole their most recent song, the guy who wrote 'Da Vinci Code' basically stole it all from another book, and he's probably a billionaire right now...

    I was...I didn't have to read his articles in class anymore after that! :D

    She's a columnist and one of their marquee names, nothing bad will happen to her by the Times. She gets a fine, slap on the wrist, "don't do it again" and it's over with more readers buying papers to see if she screws up again.

    It just sucks as the 1st rule of journalism is DON'T COPY! and the 2nd rule is REPORT


    we have a section of our society that is basically there to protect our rights, and call BS on the government. the reporters are supposed to be our police, but instead we get copycat opinioners who cater to the powerbase in exchange for "access"


    this sucks.

    She should have been fired. The NYT lost a lot of integrity letting her slide.
