  2. Then there is the Baltimore Sun, written by some guy who doesn't get any credit for his work that appears under another's by-line.

  4. The Baltimore Sun is a Hearst newspaper that is losing more of it's local writers and recently had to "release" a columnist who forgot to "attribute" his sources and had a tendency to lift entire sections out of others work. In any other medium it would be called plagerism (sp?) , but when a newspaper man does it and the free weekly is the only competition, it kind of gets ignored.

    It seems the 'industry' we're looking over, here, has an entire set of its own definitions. Especially when it comes to truth.
