Fire the person for being a moron.

Media: Looks like another plager person got caught.

March 27, 2006 Correction: Over the weekend, ABC News was alerted to the fact that a story on its Web site regarding the Patriot Act and the presidential use of signing statements bore numerous similarities to an exclusive story that appeared in Friday's Boston Globe, as well as on its Web site. Upon further investigation, it is clear that the story posted by ABCNEWS.com was substantially similar to the Boston Globe's enterprise reporting on the subject. As soon as ABC News became aware of this situation, it immediately took down the offending post. ABC News has taken appropriate disciplinary action and apologizes to the Boston Globe and to our readers for this unacceptable breach of our standards.
How dumb do you have to be to steal material from a major online source over the weekend when it appears on Friday?
