It's Not Plagiarism If They're Really Out To Get You

Let's face it, the left is a constant echo chamber. So this shouldn't be any surprise.

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.

Emphasis mine. No scandal here, ladies and germs. Move along, move along. Even though Miss Dowd was kind enough to admit her plagriasm, the AP has seen fit to call this an error.

That's how it works in lefty land.
