I have heard this before but Coulter ACCUSED OF PLAGIARISM again
From today's NY POST

-snip-
Barrie, CEO of iParadigms, told The Post that one 25-word passage from the "Godless" chapter titled "The Holiest Sacrament: Abortion" appears to have been lifted nearly word for word from Planned Parenthood literature published at least 18 months before Coulter's 281-page book was released.

A separate, 24-word string from the chapter "The Creation Myth" appeared about a year earlier in the San Francisco Chronicle with just one word change - "stacked" was changed to "piled."

Another 33-word passage that appears five pages into "Godless" allegedly comes from a 1999 article in the Portland (Maine) Press Herald.

Meanwhile, many of the 344 citations Coulter includes in "Godless" "are very misleading," said Barrie, who holds a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, where he specialized in pattern recognition.

1. Nobody thinks she actually writes any of this stuff...
...do they?

She has a thousand chimps sitting at a thousand typewriters spewing out this crap for her. Eventually, we will find a passage plagiarized from Shakespeare. But she doesn't actually read any of it, so she won't catch it before it's published!

3. It doesn't surprise me.
Anthrax can't think for herself. She is nothing but a repetitive talking head. I hope someone sues her for this.

11. They need to get in line
behind the officials in Florida who will charge her (soon I hope) with voter fraud and also behind the 9/11 widows she slandered. I am sure there are many more.

It is such a right-wing rag.

5. NY Times is worse but JUST WATCH... they say RATS are 1st...
to leave a sinking ship but media will continue to APPEAR to bail leading into November to enhance their credibility as they bash Dem candidates right before election time.

6. the msm finally writes about Annie's indiscretion?
funny thing about this is that "the rude pundit" was on this several days after the book was released. i guess the rude one is to "rude" to give credit to breaking this first.

8. For a woman who preaches chastity those Brest implants certainly

It pisses me off that the lier, cheat and thief has made so much money off of her charlatanism.

12. If Goebbels plagiarized
it would have been the least of his crimes.

But it seems to be very common among RW propagandists who are lazy and uncreative.

13. it's kinda bizarre to hold clearly insane people to that kind of standard
she probably tried to cite everything accurately, but when your mind is as bent as hers, the result was probably the best attainable....
