Washington Post editor caught plagiarizing

From the wrap: In a story about the expansion of the Panama Canal, [William] Booth [of the Washington Post] took lines from the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, an ethical breach he called a "very serious lapse" but said in a public apology, released by the Post, that it was accidental.

As usual, an assertion of inadvertent plagiarism.

The author of the material copied by Booth was Andrea Hricko.
