The Wente Plagiarism Bot
The Wente Plagiarism Bot
One of our intrepid readers, who asked to stay anonymous, is happy to let us to take credit for his work. He built us a Wente bot.

The credits are rolling on the second Margaret Wente plagiarism scandal, and so far the sequel is playing out like a watered-down rehash of the 2012 original.

As the Globe and Mail stays largely silent about the new round of allegations as reported by BuzzFeed Canada and CANADALAND, things are likely to get back to normal soon. The Globe’s editor-in-chief David Walmsley and public editor Sylvia Stead haven’t been answering media requests, possibly waiting for the scandal to blow over like it did in 2012.
