Katie Couric’s podcast commentary on Barack Obama [“Is America ready to elect a president who grew up praying in a mosque?”] has been removed from CBSnews.com and replaced by an extensively edited text-only version that highlights new wording while giving no indication of what was removed. [jadegreen, however, compares the edited commentary with the original on her blog.]
There’s no explanation for the changes and, just as in the earlier plagiarism case, CBSnews.com has disabled comments on this item.
So much for accountability.
Footnote: Andrew Ferguson of the Weekly Standard has an amusing look at the practice of ghostwriting for television.
