Well, piscis is gonna grumble, "I told you so" all over this one, but I'm running out of wire services to read. Reuters screwed this reporter. It's one thing to spin the news -- another to attribute an anonymous editor's words to another reporter entirely. Plagiarism inverted, and at least as perverted, especially given the distortions imported into the piece.
