If you rip me off, you may get away with it. But word will also get out.
In response to my post, today, on L.A. Times “reporter,” er . . . regurgitator Peter Wallsten’s rip-off of my work in today’s L.A. Times, the Politico agrees with my take–that he stole. On Ben Smith’s Politico blog, Reporter Avi Zenilman writes:
Debbie Schlussel sort of burns Peter Wallsten, and demands credit for (very roughly) similar passages.
Word gets out when you steal. Stop shoplifting from this site. And give credit where it’s due.
FYI, for those unfamiliar with it, Politico is an extremely successful, influential site set up by and filled with former Washington Post reporters.
