Can’t anyone write an original humor column anymore? Or pay the $10 it costs to buy one? A few weeks ago humor columnist Dave Fox revealed that Jon Flatland had plagiarized his and other writers’ humor columns. Now comes word from humor columnist George Waters that Waters was plagiarized by a journalist named Steve Jeffrey, the editor and publisher of a community weekly called The Anchor in Alberta. Jeffrey also is accused of plagiarizing humor columnist Sheila Moss.
“Waters read every one of Jeffrey’s columns from the last year and found that in 42 of the 52 issues he looked at, his ‘Sittin’ in the Lighthouse’ column contained material filched from other writers.”
