I'm idly thinking of creating an info box template for media coverage. It would include the title of the article, the author, the publication, and... the number of factual errors present. :-) --Douglas Muth 14:58, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm, people may care to compare the opening line of this article
Furries: thousands of people who have become in touch with their inner raccoon, panda, or fox.
to the opening line of Vanity Fair's "Pleasures of the Fur" article:
Welcome to the world of "furries": the thousands of Americans who've gotten in touch with their inner raccoon, or wolf, or fox.

Does it count as plagiarism in a newspaper article? Or does it only pertain to essays and research papers? --Douglas Muth 21:47, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
Well, plagiarism is plagiarism, regardless of the source. That aside, though, a single (poorly) rewritten sentence from an article doesn't really constitute anything actionable, I shouldn't think, just lazy writing. ----DuncanDaHusky(talk) 22:06, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
