Rand Paul Moves to Breitbart.com
So reports New York magazine:
Just a day after the Washington Times dropped Sen. Rand Paul as a columnist after it emerged that he’d plagiarized parts of at least one his weekly installments, Breitbart.com announcedPaul’s column would be moving there.
In terms of using the column as a means of reaching the GOP base, I suppose the move makes sense, but it certainly is move deeper into the depths of hacktacular “journalism.”
In regards to the plagiarism charges:
The senator haspromised to footnote his work from now on.
Some free advice to Paul: footnotes aren’t enough if one is going to cut-and-paste, as that requires usage of quotation marks as well. Just changing a word here and word just indicated that one knows exactly what one (or one’s ghostwriter) is doing.
