Complete List of Ann Coulter's Plagiaristic Plagiarizing!!!
I am outraged! Ann Coulter is a PLAGIARIST!!!
Never before have I seen fact-scenarios repeated so exactly as those repeated by Ann Coulter!!!
TPM is hot on her trail, exposing her THIEVERY!!! After reading their in-depth analysis, you will see how it's like she just opened up a remedial book on legal writing, turned to page two, and instead of learning how to write a fact scenario, just skipped over that page, and instead STOLE the HARD WORK of others who had actually READ that page, and created their OWN fact-scenarios! I cannot repeat how strongly I think that such a theft of carefully articulated basic facts represents journalistic plagiarism to the highest degree!!!
Here is TPM's #1 example of Ann Coulter's INTELLECTUAL THEFT!!!:
Example 1: "As New Hampshire attorney general in 1977, Souter opposed the repeal of an 1848 state law that made abortion a crime even though Roe v. Wade had made it irrelevant, predicting that if the law were repealed, New Hampshire 'would become the abortion mill of the United States.'"
Alleged Source: "In 1977, Souter as state attorney general spoke out against a proposed repeal of an 1848 state law that made abortion a crime -- even though the measure had been largely invalidated by the Supreme Court in Roe. vs. Wade… 'Quite apart from the fact that I don't think unlimited abortions ought to be allowed . . . I presume we would become the abortion mill of the United States[.]'" ("Liberals Leery as New Clues Surface on Souters Views," Los Angeles Times, Sept. 9, 1990)
(Identified by John Barrie/New York Post)
Yes, I know it is strange to think that Ann Coulter, whose distinctive authorial voice, whatever one may think of it, is a FRAUD, but there it is: the fact-scenario she referenced is almost exactly the words of, um, the fact-scenario she referenced when opining on it!!!
Read the whole list! Disgusting! Plagiarist! Thief! Hot! Blonde! Best! Selling! Author! Um! She! Sucks! We! Hate! Her! Won't! She! Please! Just! Shut! Up!
I love the smell of desperation in the morning.
Didn't TPM used to be a good blog, or was that just me remembering what I used to think like before 9/11?
UPDATE - from my former editor at UPS: "There are only so many ways you can rewrite a fact and minimal matching text is not plagiarism," Lee Salem, editor and president of Universal Press Syndicate, said Monday in a statement.
