More Plagiarism Charges Against Coulter
Posted on Jun 15, 2006
Passages in Ann Coulter’s new book appear cribbed from material distributed by an anti-abortion group (according to Raw Story) and from a press conference by Alan Keyes, then a Republican Senate candidate (according to Rude Pundit).
In an attempt to counter a New York Times article, conservative pundit Ann Coulter appears to have inserted a list which was originally compiled by an anti-abortion group almost word-for-word into her new book, RAW STORY has found.
The Rude Pundit has been investigating Ann Coulter’s new “book” Godless for potential plagiarism, having discovered at least one rather textbook example and one suspicious simlarity in the first chapter. But, still and all, it didn’t amount to much unless more parts of the book were shown to be plagiarized. So here ya go.
The Rude Pundit and Ron Brynaert of Raw Story are offering more examples of Coulter’s loose belief in giving credit where credit is due if that credit is not hers. Brynaert’s work will appear at Raw Story.
The following is from Coulter’s chapter on the Willie Horton furlough case from the 1988 election campaign, following Coulter’s belief that one should continue to fight battles that are decades old….
