IS THE AP PLAGIARIZING BLOGS? A “we do not credit blogs” policy doesn’t sound like much of a defense. (Via Majikthise and L’Ombre de l’Olivier). Whether or not it’s plagiarism, exactly, it’s certainly tacky.
UPDATE: Jim Lindgren says the AP does credit blogs, regardless of its stated policy: “I find this story triply strange.”
ANOTHER UPDATE: Roger Simon says it’s all part of the class struggle. Onward, comrades!
