Ann Coulter Plagiarism

The Rude Pundit and Ron Brynaert catch Ann Coulter plagiarizing passages for her new book (the one where she calls the Jersey Girls "harpies"). Coulter took an entry written on the Illinois Right To Life website and copied it nearly word for word.


"Repair heart attack damage (using the patient’s own blood stem cells)," says the Illinois Right To Life Committee Website.

"Repairing heart attack damage with the patient’s own blood stem cells," writes Coulter.

"Restore bone marrow in cancer patients (using stem cells from umbilical cord blood)," says the Website.

"Restoring bone marrow in cancer patients using stem cells from umbilical cord blood," Coulter writes.

For these fifteen items, Coulter appears to do little more than remove the parentheses and slightly change a word or two, such as "using" into "with."


Go read Ron's full article at Raw Story. For those wondering, this is the same Ron Brynaert who guestblogged at this site.

Yes, but I doubt her fans will care.

Michelle, you're right on that count. I still believe plagiurism should be cited. That's the least I can do for Ann. ;)

It won't be the first time she has plagerized in her so-called books. What is even more disgusting, is this: who the hell could she find worse than herself to plagerize and secondly, I'd commit Hari Kari if she evered copied off me.
