    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.

    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.

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