HARD-HITTING JOURNALISM: Big Boston Globe Hatchet Job on Romney Was Lifted from Far Left Mother Jones and TPM.

Hey, don’t knock Mother Jones. I’ve been in Mother Jones.

UPDATE: Prof. Jacobson writes that the recycling goes farther than that: “Actually, The Globe ran the story 10 years ago in 2002 and it was part of McCain’s oppo research book. The 2002 story was revived during the primaries this year when the McCain oppo research book was leaked. Question for TPM and Mother Jones, where did they get the story? Did they lift it from the Globe, which is too ignorant of its own archives to realize that they were first to the story by a decade?”

Plus: “It gets worse. The Globe has taken down the story temporarily and will give partial credit to TPM and Mother Jones for a story The Globe originated a decade ago!”
