SENATOR RAND PAUL FINDS A PERFECT “JOURNALISTIC” HOME

How was it that I didn’t see this coming? Senator Rand Paul R-KY has taken his editorials to Breitbart.com according to a recent post at that site. Paul has been dogged of late by allegations that he lifted some 1300+ words from a 2003 Heritage Foundation case analysis about harvesting spiny lobsters. Now this shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone and I don’t think plagiarism has anything to do with political affiliation. what this does reveal, both from Breitbart.com, which is a conservative leader in fearmongering for profit, as well as Senator Paul is an attitude that getting the message out is more important than crediting sources. This is something that must not be tolerated in journalism– ever.

Qu’ul cuda praedex nihil!
