NY Times' Maureen Dowd plagiarizes blogger

It's too late for a bailout. Dead Tree Media is dead.

Maureen Dowd, Pulitizer [sic] Prize winner. Today. New York Times:

More and more the timeline is raising the question of why, if the torture was to prevent terrorist attacks, it seemed to happen mainly during the period when the Bush crowd was looking for what was essentially political information to justify the invasion of Iraq.

Josh Marshall. [Left-wing (but you knew that if the NYT is reading him)] Blogger. Last Thursday. Talking Points Memo:

More and more the timeline is raising the question of why, if the torture was to prevent terrorist attacks, it seemed to happen mainly during the period when we were looking for what was essentially political information to justify the invasion of Iraq.


Xerox Mo Dowd came up with a silly story about how, while she hadn't read the left-wing blog post, a friend of hers had, and, in the course of casual political discussions, suggested that Dowd explore the idea in her column. Not explained was how a lengthy and complex sentence was transcribed almost word-for-word from blog to friend to Dowd to column.

The L.A. Times could learn from this. Doddering old fool George Skelton would make a lot more sense if he stopped trying to come up with his own bizarre columns denying reality and brown-nosing tax-hiking politicians and just start copying and pasting from left-wing blogs.
