Yesterday, San Francisco Chronicle Editor at Large Phil Bronstein wrote a blog post that “all but accused the New York Times of plagiarizing a Chronicle story about Oakland Police Chief Anthony W. Batts for its inaugural Bay Area edition last Friday,” BayNewser reports.
However, although Bronstein apologized for his ultimately incorrect assumption, he did take the Times to task for publishing a story that was basically told in two other California pubs:
“Times, don’t ignore all the good things I said in the post just because you’re the paper of record and you can — I expect a lot for $900-plus a year. Like a lead story in a news section that hasn’t shown up, in very similar form (or, in the case of the Long Beach Post-Telegram, in different form) everywhere else.”
