WND's Corsi Plagiarizes From Wikipedia
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A July 5 WorldNetDaily article by Jerome Corsi (Google cache) contains the following passage:

If that looks familiar, it's because Corsi copied it pretty much word-for-word from the Wikipedia entry for CinemaScore:

The current version of Corsi's article has removed the plagiarized passages and, for some reason, managed to misspell CinemaScore. The article does not inform readers that it has been altered to remove plagiarism.

Between this and the chart-reading fail, one has to wonder how Corsi could continue to write for WND. But Corsi has always done this, and one realizes that, unlike with any other journalist, factual accuracy or journalistic integrity is not required to be a WND reporter.
