As someone who teaches both media law and media ethics (yes, I know -- "isn't that an oxymoron?"), this is an all-too-familiar example of the kind of excuses I get as an instructor:  [From Elliott Shaffner's open letter] "Did I even recognize what I was doing was plagiarism.  I did not."
 
I don't buy it.  Mixing up someone else's words with your own might happen innocently, once -- even though it would be very sloppy journalism and still very problematic.  But apparently she did this multiple times for multiple outlets.
 
My "favorite" line:  "It was not intentionally deceitful or steal-y."

I liked it, too. I'm going to be on the lookout for the opportunity to be unintentionally deceitful.

This may be an opportune time to reveal that there is no such person as buffetbuster.  His trip reports were actually written by monkeys locked in a room with typewriters.  Explains quite a bit, huh?
