From Raw Story

Conservative author Ann Coulter

The folks over at TPM Muckraker goaded the company that syndicates Ann Coulter’s column into following up on a report in the New York Post alleging that the conservative hatemonger plagiarized material for her writings.


TPM Muckraker:

I heard back from Universal Press Syndicate’s Kathie Kerr. Her company distributes Ann Coulter’s column to over 100 newspapers around the country—columns which, according to recent news, may have contained plagiarized material.

I had asked Kerr earlier this morning whether her company was taking any action in response to these published claims.

In an email, Kerr thanked me for bringing the assertions to UPS’s attention, and asked me to get a copy of the report to them. “If Mr. Barrie would be so kind to send Lee Salem, President and Editor of Universal Press Syndicate his report, we will be happy to review it. Until we do, there’s little we can say about it,” she wrote me. John Barrie was the New York Post’s expert source who claimed to have identified Coulter’s plagiarized passages.
