AP SAYS IT DIDN’T PLAGIARIZE but relied on interest groups: “The article written by the AP, ‘Security Clearance Rules May Impede Gays,’ attributed its information to gay rights groups, who happened to be wrong and who received their information from Raw Story.”

UPDATE: Jon Henke emails: “Didn’t the New York Times just do a story ripping bloggers for relying on information provided by Wal-Mart (an interest group)?”

Yes, but it’s okay when Certified Professional JournalistsTM do it.
