Phil Bronstein, executive vice president and editor-at-large of the San Francisco Chronicle, has exposed the New York Times for "borrowing" a Chronicle story.
Bronstein also noted: To be fair, a reasonable amount of what was in the Times story was different than the Chronicle's...
The same could also be said for Alison Routman's paper written while on UVa's "Semester at Sea," but Alison, unlike the NYT, walked the plank anyway.
And, then there was the Hartford Courant business.
Plagiarism is plagiarism, no matter how the University of Virginia tries to adjust the definition.
