Paul at Wizbang notes that this Chicago Sun-Times op-ed by Jesse Jackson is suspiciously like this TownHall piece by Michael Barone.
Obviously, it’s a mistake in attribution by CST. One wonders, though, who’s more chagrined: Barone or Jackson?
I have to agree with Paul this is funny.
James Joyner also comments.
Clearly someone at the Sun-Times got sloppy. I wonder if it went out like that in the print edition?
As one of the commenters at wizbang put it.. Usually it is the guy who GETS plagiarized who is upset.
Ya gotta think Barone got a big laugh out of it.
Jesse Jackson, or Michael Barone?
Jesse Jackson has been credited with writing this op-ed in the Chicago Sun-Times: Partial Recounts a Totally Bad Idea. Oddly enough, it seems to be quite the same as this piece in Town Hall by Michael Barone entiteld 2000 Changed Everything.
