Instapundit Can't Differentiate Between Journalism & Plagiarism

Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit.com calls Mediabistro's Garrett Graff "another Jeff Gannon." Graff has extensive journalism experience:
[He was] news writer and executive editor at the Harvard Crimson, Harvard University's daily newspaper, where he wrote more news articles than any other writer in half-a-century and held internships at ABCNews' Political Unit and at the Atlantic Monthly.
Another Jeff Gannon? Gannon/Guckert's "experience" was a $50 seminar at a right-wing propaganda institute. As you can tell from Guckert's biography....oh...wait. You can't find it . For some reason, Guckert's biographies have been scrubbed off the internet. Why? Perhaps because he doesn't want people to see how woefully unqualified he was and how his affiliation with Talon News was merely a pretense?

Reynolds is being a Guckert apologist. If he wants to be an apologist for a fraud and a possible criminal, so be it. But no one is buying the false equivalency he and his collegues on the right are trying to sell.

So he had help getting into the gaggle and the afternoon briefing. Tis a pity. But it does show McClellan to be less than forthright when he said that day passes were easily attainable.

I've been following Garrett's saga. I think that it is a hoot and a holler!

I am amused that Garrett, a prolific writer and former editor of the Harvard Crimson couldn't get a pass through normal channels.

I can't wait to see his take on the conversation with Connie Lawn, Guckert's old seat neighbor.

It's because Graff is hiding behind a fake name, right? No, wait, that's not it...

Reynold's is a cock. I can't believe that man is taken seriously by anyone.

What a bunch of idiots you guys are. The world marches on and you fools worry over Gannon/Guckert.
