By Chadwick Matlin
June 21, 2012

On Tuesday Jim Romenesko ran a post on his blog that showed how Jonah Lehrer, the New Yorker’s new staff writer, had copied sections of his previous writing and repurposed them for his recent pieces, verbatim. Bloggers quickly found more instances, including one in which Lehrer appeared not to copy himself, but Malcom Gladwell, another New Yorker staff writer. Gladwell and Lehrer both use the same quote from William Goldman’s book, Adventures in the Screen Trade, and introduce the quote with the same language.

“You weren’t on that Cathay Pacific flight, were you?”

People have been asking me this question with a unique mix of sympathy and outright horror. And the answer is yes. The one that idled for 11 hours on the tarmac of New York’s JFK Airport, as we waited in vain for a gate. With two kids crawling over me, ages 2 and 5.
