WashPost Makes History: First Paper to Call for Prosecution of Its Own Source (After Accepting Pulitzer)
"In arguing that no public interest was served by exposing PRISM, what did the Post editors forget to mention? That the newspaper that (simultaneous with The Guardian) made the choice to expose the PRISM program by spreading its operational details and top-secret manual all over its front page is called … the Washington Post."

Word Theft by Ruth Graham
"T.S. Eliot, who relied on other sources for much of 'The Waste Land' (plagiarism or allusion?), famously wrote, 'Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.' Less often quoted is the next line, 'Bad poets deface what they take.' This is what seems to gall many victims of plagiarists: to see their poems reprinted in weaker versions than the original."
