WP reporter who 'borrowed' from Miami Herald in 1991 was fired

Seattle Times

A former Washington Post reporter encouraged Romenesko to look at the case of Laura Parker, who "was summarily sacked back in 1991," and compare it to the way the Post handled Sari Horwitz's plagiarism. "I do think it's worth a discussion," writes the journalist, who asked not to be named. "Have standards changed in 20 years? Has the Post changed since then? Are there different standards for Pulitzer winners?" Feel free to post a comment.
