That's Called Journalism, Baby


From The Ryskind Sketchbook

Heh. I never got to this story while it was still swirling, and now that it's been shown that McCain is not quite wily enough to have pre-planted a moving story in case he decided to run for President 30 years later, nor to have plagiarized an anecdote no one else has ever written, I give this cartoon to you just because it's such a good drawing. Ryskind has much more at the link, including this:

...using her years of experience to report the news exactly the way Obama tells it to her.

As journalism has become synonymous with transcription of press releases, I'm not sure anyone in the field even knows what plagiarism is.
