I caught most of the “cut and paste plagiarism” episode on the NPR talk show “Talk of the Nation” this afternoon, and I must say that on the whole, it was a pretty good piece. While you had just enough “alarmists” to keep it interesting (and, sorry to say this, it seemed that most of the alarmist were high school teachers), most of the discussion was, I thought, surprisingly reasonable. Of course, this wasn’t a Rush Limbaugh talks about plagiarism show….
Check out the link, if you’re interested; I’m likely to assign this as at least “recommended listening” for my grad class.
