FBLA Dares To Ask: Did Radar’ s Ethnicist Rip Off Phillip Milano?

Fond as FBLA is of Radar, we know a rip-off when we see one. The Ethnicist, while clever, is certainly very, very close to Phillip Milano’s column, Dare to Ask. Considering that Milano’s been writing the column for a number of years for the Florida Times Union in Jacksonville and won a Columbia J-School award, he’s hardly unknown. He’s also written a book about asking and answering those rude questions that pop into everyone’s head. We doubt that anyone at Radar came up with this idea all by themselves.

Milano told FBLA that his lawyer is interested in Radar’s “new” column. Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but it’s so
tacky.
