Another plagiarist with a lame excuse

    New York Press hires television writer Claudia Lonow to write a sex column. She immediately takes questions from Dan Savage's column and then writes her own answers to them.

    Oh, I didn't know that was a breach of journalism ethics! says the plagiarist. Not surprising that a TV writer doesn't give a hoot about stealing other people's material.

    How do you get a gig as a sex columnist? Do you have to prove your expertise in the area?

    Oh, and for the record, another hearty FU to lantaur's plagarist.

    That's the problem with being a sex columnist. How many original questions can there be?

    Ace, you've obviously never read Savage Love. ;D

    How would one prove qualifications as a sex columnist during an interview? Would management be required to conduct any interview with a candidate in the presence of an HR person?
