Its called a “hangover”

The Gruaniads Backbencher column complains today about a certain lack of productivity on Guido’s part post the ASI’s Blogging and Democracy bash. Don’t worry, we’ll have something for you to lift soon enough. I also notice a bit of cutting and pasting going on over at the Mail too. Recess Monkey says the same – our invoices to Associated Newspapers to follow.

Which reminds me, was I the only one to notice during the US election that what you read in Washington blogger Wonkette mysteriously turned up in the Guardian’s diary column the next day. Even the idea of a drinking game played on the basis of TV pundit cliches was blatantly plagiarised. Ms Hyde gets paid to do that? Cut, Paste – that’s mere blogging, not broadsheet journalism.
