Thanks, SEK. The first thing I thought when I saw this story was that he was stealing from a pretty high profile source. This also seems like a perfect illustration of how a lower middlebrow publication steals from an upper middlebrow publication.

I wonder how this will affect his work on CNN?

I'm not sure he survives this. He's been put in time-out for a month, and I have a feeling he's going to be like one of those children whose drug-addled parents lock in the closet in May and only remember doing so in August.

It doesn't make sense. They must both have taken it from some other source.

Stunningly stupid. I'm crushed that one of my favorite journalists did this, and said as much over at my place: http://piedtype.com/2012/08/12/dirtiest-word-in-journalism-plagiarist/
Time and CNN may eventually forgive him; I won't.
