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 newspaper 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 that a search found similar examples taken from media outlets such as Reuters and that an investigation was ongoing.
Kouwe declined to comment on Tuesday.

The New York Slimes.
All the news that’s cut and paste?............
Thieving other writers’ work is standard fare at the times.
This from a paper that does nothing but parrot DNC press releases, verbatim.
Another one bites the dust.
Another in a line of “seeing-is-believing” NYT-nitwit plagiarists.
I thought plagiarism was a job requirement at the NYTimes.
Ain’t the first time for the old moldy lady —— no need to do your own investigating when you can steal another’s work product
Six different occasions is not a mistake dude!
How many does this make now?
s.o.p. at the times. who’s next??
Poor little Zak....he’s been so concerned about getting in his NYC teabag time, he’s had to phone in his columns....give him a ‘teabag’ break why don’t you?
Probably plagerized off of Kos, DUmp and HuffPo too.
Honestly.....are you joking or what...you know we’re talking about NYT for God’s sake...what do you expect from rabid liberals? Original thinking? Fair play? Professionalism? Give me a break!
Will celebrate the day the NYT closes its doors.
Will be a great day for American journalism!!!
Joe Biden will hire him as a speechwriter.
They will not hire a replacement. Therefore a new approach to thinning the herd.
Attrition, from the bottom.
