Wow, first Breitbart fabricating its news stories, and then celebrated FOX News talking head Juan Williams is caught plagiarizing.
Salon’s Alex Seitz-Wald reported William’s paper “The Hill” was forced to change Williams’ most recent piece after it learned large portions of it were stolen from a Center for American Progress report.
Williams, it seems, has decided that rather than walk the “virtuous” path of taking responsibility for his own actions, he’s going to take the typical conservative pundit’s chicken way out and blame a researcher, who he said gave him what Williams thought were “his words and summaries” of the CAP report. Guess Juan was sleeping in class the day his teacher talked about using others writing as his own?
Not really surprising though, most right-wing talking heads regularly make stuff up, so why not use other people’s work and claim it as your own as well? When you work for FOX it appears it’s not only acceptable it’s encouraged; the FOX News mantra of the future may very well be, “We make it up – or steal it – you decide.”
