Is Broadwll also a plagiarist?

I am a HUGE NY football Giants fan and I can't forget that beginning last December and through the playoffs the team's motto was "All In." For cripes sakes, I even have towels with that phrase on it they gave out at the games. Then in January Broadwell comes out with her book titled "All In" about Petreus.

1. I don't think that qualifies as plagiarism

Especially if that's all you have. "All in" is not an original thought or idea by someone else.

2. Its a poker term, betting all your chips.

Been around for decades, but used more in general use since TV started showing poker.

3. She didn't even write the book...look at the title page...it's "With...another guy"

Name escapes me..it's like with celeb bios...the star's name is on the title page, but the "With" whoever is the one who did the actual writing.

WaPo journo on Jessica Lynch story rejoins paper
In Debunking, Jessica Lynch, Media myths, Newspapers, Washington Post on January 6, 2011 at 8:50 am

Vernon Loeb, one of the Washington Post reporters who in 2003 wrote the botched story about Jessica Lynch’s purported battlefield heroics in Iraq, is returning to the newspaper as its local editor.

Washington Post, April 3, 2003

The electrifying but erroneous story about Lynch, then a 19-year-old Army private, turned her into the single most recognizable soldier of the Iraq War.

In a front-page report published April 3, 2003, the Post anonymously cited “U.S. officials” in saying that Lynch “fought fiercely” in the ambush of her unit in southern Iraq, that she had “shot several enemy soldiers,” and that she had fired her weapon “until she ran out of ammunition.”

But the hero-warrior narrative–published beneath the bylines of Loeb and Susan Schmidt–was untrue.
