Plagiarism article plagiarized

The New York Magazine writes a story on the Kaavya Viswanathan case and plagiarism, that is 99% plagiarized.

“With the endless stories about the Kaavya Viswanathan case, and thinking about the plague of plagiarism, we decided to write a piece about plagiarism that is plagiarized. David Edelstein, our film critic, conceived of this idea and tracked down 20 articles on the subject of plagiarism pegged to various scandals. Then he did a big cut-and-paste job and wrote a denunciation of plagiarism that is roughly 99% plagiarized.”

Very meta, indeed. It’s like doing a coffee table book about coffee tables (in fact, I saw that Seinfeld episode last night…) [Via Media Orchard.]
