Dowd’s modified limited hangout

Jack Shafer points out in Slate that New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd deserves credit for not going into hiding, not whining and not claiming that what she did wasn’t plagiarism. I’ll give her that.

In an e-mail to Media Nation, Shafer also fingered an attribution I’d messed up in my Guardian column, which has now been corrected. I’d misattributed a Dowd e-mail to the wrong source. Thank you, Jack.

Maureen Dowd’s real sin


Dowd was just talking with a friend

    Shafer giving her credit for being prompt is lame. What choice did she have? She thought she was quoting a muse (Leon?) while she was unintentionally lifting Josh’s stuff. A semi-honest mistake.
