Syndicate: Coulter didn't plagiarize material
In a statement issued Monday, Universal Press Syndicate says columnist Ann Coulter did not plagiarize material despite accusations leveled in the New York Post and other sources.
The syndicate said it did a thorough investigation of the charges. Apparently the investigation ended too soon. If Universal Press officials had kept on reading they might have realized Ms. Coulter is a poor excuse for a satirist who relies on shock value and endless self-promotion to build an audience. Instead, they will continue to bank the checks from the more than 100 newspapers that carry her column.
