Plagiarism? It’s The Editor’s Fault

From Holden:

Howard Hurtz:

Late yesterday, the liberal Web sites Daily Kos and Atrios posted examples of what appeared to be instances of plagiarism from Domenech’s writing at the William & Mary student paper. Three sentences of a 1999 Domenech review of a Martin Scorsese film were identical to a review in Salon magazine, and several sentences in Domenech’s piece on a James Bond movie closely resembled one in the Internet Movie Database. Domenech said he needed to research the examples but that he never used material without attribution and had complained about a college editor improperly adding language to some of his articles.

Yeah, right. Bendover’s college newspaper editor inserted those unattributed passages in his movie reviews during his pre-drop-out William & Mary days. And then he followed Benji to The National Review, body-slammed K-Lo, and foced some more unattributed passages into Bendover’s work.

That’s the ticket.
