Accusations of plagiarism at Dagens Nyheter

I mentioned earlier an article in Axess about blogs as media watchdogs. Here is a brilliant example, maybe the most ambitious of its kind in Sweden so far. Since it is in English I thought I would share the link.

Stockholm Spectator accuses Dagens Nyheter of plagiarism and claim that a reporter have copied at least four articles from the New York Times without giving the original author or the paper any credit. The full story here is quite interesting and contains correspondence between The Spectator and the editor of DN Kultur (DN Culture). The story is now spreading across the blogosphere and it doesn’t seem that DN are willing to do a media culpa, which leads me to believe that we haven’t heard the end of it yet. To be continued.
