Roger Ailes: You owe me money, dude.
Fox News likes to mock news from liberal media. Today, however, it plagiarized some.
We already know what Fox thinks of New Times
-- when we accused Congressman Allen West of violating the flag code
by taking an American flag scuba diving, Fox News rewrote a stolen headline to read, "Lib Media Says Allen West Violated Flag Code
Now, though, the Fox content thieves have copied a New Times blog post -- byline and all -- and stuck it on the front page of their Fox Nation section, which features stories painstakingly stolen from news sources that can get by without quite as much plagiarism.
We usually welcome links and shoutouts from other sites -- especially ones that get 67,000 Facebook likes in an afternoon -- but the link doesn't mean much when entire posts are lifted. Hey, Fox -- you've used my byline before
, but you paid actual money for it. If you want more content from a dirty, liberal heathen like me, you're gonna have to pony up.
