Juan Williams, Who Is An Extremely Dumb Person, Explains His Plagiarism By Noting That He Doesn't Even Write His Columns At All

Hilarious.

"I couldn't have plagiarized that column, because all of my columns are actually plagiarized."

He has an assistant writing his columns and so the assistant gets the blame. Actually, that's not what he says; he claims he wrote the whole column, except for the plagiarized parts, which had been supplied by the assistant.

He says he thought the assistant had put the argument into "his own words," so he only thought he was plagiarizing the assistant, not the original source of the assistant's words (which was Center for American Progress, surprisingly enough).

"I was writing a column about the immigration debate and had my researcher look around to see what data existed to pump up this argument and he sent back what I thought were his words and summaries of the data," Williams told Alex Seitz-Wald without apologizing.

"I had never seen the CAP report myself, so I didn't know that the young man had in fact not summarized the data but had taken some of the language from the CAP report," Williams continued, adding, "I just feel betrayed." Because he failed to double-check or do anything with his assistant's research beyond putting it directly in his published piece? Okay, just checking.

I thought I was plagiarizing my lowly assistant rather than Someone Who Counts.

Who knows what the truth is, except whatever Juan Williams is saying isn't it. All I know is that this imbecile is always a quarter second away from swallowing his own tongue.

Fox hired this moron just to embarrass NPR, when they fired him for being Politically Incorrect. Now that the "embarrass NPR" goal is already satisfied (and no one even remembers this), why is this dolt still drawing a check from Rupert Murdock?

And I wonder how widespread this practice is. I wonder how many of these "writers" and "thinkers" have actually stopped writing and instead are now "Producers" of writing, the way a producer on a film hires the team and oversees the team but doesn't actually take the concrete steps we usually think of in making a movie.
