Darren Barefoot on Angèle Yanor: “I may have judged her column prematurely. If she indeed lifted a lot of content from the Times, the quality must be better than I thought. On her site, Ms. Yanor rather laughably argues that she "never called herself a journalist". Ah, well, so long as you publish regularly in a major newspaper but don't profess to be a journalist, ethical considerations don't apply. Is she aware of the irony that the bottom of her blog page reads "content may only be published with prior written consent"? There's no indication of actual copyright, so the text's origin may be up for grabs.”
And in a subsequent entry, Darren notes that Yanor's own website contains plagarized material, and not material that's been the focus of national media attention.
