LA Times dumb on plagiarism

Plagiarism is Wag the Dog for media organisations: pretty baubles designed to keep the attention of the dumb savages while their womenfolk are bundled off.

The Times, unfortunately, chose to lift from a Howard Kurtz piece in WaPo a graf, more or less whole, which included a reference to Jack Shafer.

Shafer is rightly relaxed about the original offence, and rather more concerned at the Times' obduracy in refusing to acknowledge their fault.
