In the words of Juan Williams… Wait, let me double-check that

Uh-oh. Yet another liberal pundit has been accused of lifting somebody else’s work and is blaming it on an assistant.

New York Magazine:

[quote]A column by Fox News talking head Juan Williams published last month by the Hill was quietly updated last week to fix some pesky instances of plagiarism. The article, it turned out, featured entire paragraphs from a Center for American Progress report on immigration, with a few words changed here and there, as detailed by Salon.

Funny! New York Magazine makes a point of the fact that Williams is a contributor on Fox News, BUT the plagiarism was published in The Hill. Knowingly/Intentionally or carelessly doesn’t matter much, IMO. Ethics and diligence are, increasingly, amusing cultural and professional anachronisms among US national-level MSM journalists. I will agree, though, that this demonstrates that Fox needs to adjust its decision process for hiring “journalists”, especially from national MSM outlets and NPR.

Sad, I actually respect Juan.
