From Editor & Publisher: The Worcester Telegram & Gazette summoned home its New England Patriots beat writer from the pre-Super Bowl festivities in Jacksonville after learning that he may have plagiarized a column from an article previously posted on the Sports Illustrated Web site. In a correction published Wednesday, the paper stated, "Substantial portions of a column originally written by Peter King and published Jan. 24 on the Sports Illustrated Web site were printed Jan. 30 in the Sunday Telegram under the byline of Ken Powers, a staff member of the Telegram & Gazette. The Telegram & Gazette takes plagiarism seriously and is conducting a full investigation. We apologize to our readers and to Sports Illustrated."
Shouldn't the editors have noticed when their football guy started writing about girls' softball and lattes?
