Juan Williams lifts
work, blames assistant

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/8/2013 9:15:16 AM

Juan Williams, the Fox News pundit and former NPR news analyst, has admitted that a column he wrote for The Hill lifted passages from a Center for American Progress report, without attribution. But when asked about the column by Salon´s Alex Seitz-Wald, who first reported the omission, Williams placed the blame on his research assistant. "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 Seitz-Wald.

Having new, fresh and original ideas is not allowed for those in the ranks of the Liberal elite.

It is a badge of pride for leftist to regurgitate the old tired (but approved) ideas of others.

This appears to be a "Two for Juan".

You have to attribute anything you use that belongs to someone else, even if is just summarized data. Obviously you do not learn that is liberal arts colleges. But you darn well learn that in engineering schools. This is just my opinion. I know nothing about Mr Williams except I do not like to watch him on TV.

Journalists who lift original work from others are lazy. If that makes me a racist because Juan happens to be a black journalist, then so be it. The first thing any responsible journalist tells his assistants is not to plagiarize anything. Look at all the trouble this has caused to so-called responsible journalists over the years. Do you own research Juan or ask Brit Hume if you can borrow one of his assistants.

Roger Ailes will not do anything to Juan Williams...he allows the dumbest liberal in DC to remain on TV every evening at 5. At least Juan uses facts and figures...Beckel just regurgitates the party line, night after night after night after night after night. I doubt Beckel can even turn on a computer much less do any research.

If Juan thought he had used his assistants words, then he should have credited the assistant. Either way he didn´t write it and The Hill should at least censure him.

Juan is a weak little man who has been affirmative actioned along. Velcroed to the Obie-Dem talking points, he pretends to see the other side from time to time. But we know where his heart and his limited mind are.

He has outlived his usefulness at Fox.

In this instance, any "research assistant" (do you really believe Juan has one?) worth their salt would have included the source with any "data" they provided to him.

Juan thought he could get away with it.

"The research aassistant did it"

Where have we heard that before?

Of course, that is also an admission that he doesn´t do his own writing or research.
But when would he have the time o do it himself?

He spends 24/7 on TV defending Obama.

We joke at our house that in order for the 5 PM program at Fox News to truly be "The Five", it would be necessary for Juan Williams to be seated on Bob Beckel´s lap.

Now that Ailes has hired Dennis Kucinich they could stack all three of them and create "The Five Point Five".

Juan Williams has added to the proof that is present anytime he shows his face and speaks. He´s a not-very-bright thief and liar who´s in the tank for Obama to the point he´s in danger of drowning. He attempts to make points that are so off the mark he´s laughable—not likely to make MENSA any time soon. Hhis commentary is so stupid and far left no matter the issue that he´s insulting—the only thing he doesn´t do is climb on the desk and stamp his feet. Then again, he´s doing his job as one of Fox´s boys being rammed down our throats to prove their "fair and balanced" baloney.

Plagiarism identifies Juan as a thief who steals others thoughts and ideas and claims them as his own. The reason people get excited is because ideas are of intrinsic value and those who steal them are in a particular class of low life. Caught red-handed, we now know for certain that Juan Williams is nothing more than a thief behaving like any other thief and blaming someone else.

There isn´t a denial that will work. Juan´s theft was published, he was paid, and it has his name on it and he´s running for cover. He´s a poster boy for an Obama toady and there´s a perfect song he can adopt as his theme song that was popular early in the 20th century: Run for the Roundhouse Nellie, They Can´t Corner You There.

There’s something that makes the current Supreme Court different from some of its recent predecessors. The justices got religion. Or at least they seem more open about their faith, appearing before devout audiences and talking more about how religion shaped their lives or guides them now. As the court this week weighs religious conviction vs. legal obligation in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act, those who study the court say the change is hard to quantify but easy to notice. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions during their

Peeling back the curtain hiding the incestuous relationship between the mainstream media and the White House, Arizona reporter Catherine Anaya revealed that “President Obama´s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing.” She found it very interesting that Mr. Carney “knows what he´s going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents and reporters also have those answers printed in front of them, because of course it helps when they´re producing their reports for later on.” This is not surprising.

More than half of the cigarettes sold in New York State are smuggled in from other places to avoid the Empire State´s taxes on smokes, which have soared nearly 200 percent since 2006, according to a report issued by the conservative Tax Foundation. New York is the highest net importer of smuggled cigarettes -- illegal smokes account for 56.9 percent of the state´s total market. New York´s cigarettes tax is $4.35 per pack, the country´s highest. The situation there isn´t unique. The Tax Foundation also cites a study that found that 58.7 percent of discarded cigarettes found in five Northeastern

Ten people are unaccounted for after a fire that destroyed a motel at the Jersey shore, killing three people, authorities said Friday. Firefighters responded to the Mariner´s Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach just after 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said three males died in the blaze and eight people were injured.

Russell Crowe stars in Darren Aronofsky´s Bible-based epic. Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture´s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah. Whereas for a century most Hollywood filmmakers have tread carefully and respectfully when tackling biblical topics in big-budget epics aimed at a mass audience, Aronofsky has been daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention. The narrative of the global flood that wiped out almost all earthly life is the original

MOSCOW — There is no need for Russia to further retaliate against U.S. sanctions, President Vladimir Putin said Friday as Russia´s upper house of parliament endorsed the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Moscow made its first retaliatory shot on Thursday by banning nine U.S. officials and lawmakers from entering Russia, but Putin indicated that Russia would likely refrain from curtailing cooperation in areas such as Afghanistan. Moscow appears to hope to limit the damage from the latest U.S. and EU sanctions and avoid further Western blows.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,
