Slate’s Plagiarism Accusations Followed by Alt-Weekly’s Web Site Shut Down

bulletin080708 Slates Plagiarism Accusations Followed by Alt Weeklys Web Site Shut DownYesterday Media Mob (and just about every other English language media and journalism Web site) wrote about Slate critic Jody Rosen’s investigation into The Montgomery County Bulletin‘s egregious and repeated plagiarism of his and other journalists’ works for their small-circulation alt-weekly.
