NEW YORK The New York Times is looking into the work of one its reporters following accusations that he plagiarized from The Wall Street Journal and other sources.
The paper published an editor's note online Sunday and in papers Monday that said reporter Zachery Kouwe "appears to have improperly appropriated wording and passages published by other news organizations."
The Times said Journal editors pointed out similarities between a Journal story from Feb. 5 and Times pieces later that day and on Feb. 6. The Times said a search found other similar examples taken from media outlets like Reuters and that an investigation is ongoing.

The Journal's letter listed six examples from a story about Bernard Madoff's relatives.

The poor guy probably thought he was quoting White House memos. It’s hard to keep up with all the talking points.
