Juan Williams: I’m not a plagiarist, but the guy who writes my columns might be

That’s not exactly how Juan put it, but it’s a fairly accurate summary.

From New York Magazine by way of Ace and RS McCain:

A column by Fox News talking head Juan Williams published last month by the Hill was quietly updated last week to fix some pesky instances of plagiarism. The article, it turned out, featured entire paragraphs from a Center for American Progress report on immigration, with a few words changed here and there, as detailed by Salon. “I was writing a column about the immigration debate and had my researcher look around to see what data existed to pump up this argument and he sent back what I thought were his words and summaries of the data,” Williams told Alex Seitz-Wald without apologizing.

Salon.com:

Williams told Salon that the researcher has submitted a letter of resignation, but that he has not decided whether to accept it. “I just feel betrayed,” Williams said.

Quite the dilemma. On the one hand, Juan doesn’t want to further risk using work that had been plagiarized, but on the other hand, who else is going to write his column on such short notice?

Gotta run. My assistant just submitted for review the manuscript for my new book. Looks like it’s going to be called “The Old Man and the Sea.” That sounds familiar, but who am I to doubt Jayson?

Update: Flashback quote: “I’m a real reporter — not a blogger out somewhere.”
