In case you haven't heard the news, erstwhile left-wing hero Chris Hedges has been exposed as a serial plagiarizer.

So who in this world has the LEAST standing to condemn serial plagiarist Chris Hedges?

So now we have the laughable spectacle of WILLIAM RIVERS PITT the notorious fabulist who lies with psychotic ease condemning serial plagiarist Chris Hedges as you can see in this THREAD, "Chris Hedges has been accused of serious, serial plagiarism." So let us watch serial fabulist WILLIAM RIVERS PITT condemn serial plagiarist Chris Hedges in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting the Pitt is still waiting that 24 business hours for the Blue Fairy to arrive with Karl Roves sealed indictment, is in the [brackets]:
Chris Hedges has been accused of serious, serial plagiarism
[WILLIAM RIVERS PITT has been accused of serious, serial fabulism. Okay, pitt then plagiarized several paragraphs from the New Republic before coming up with this holier-than-thou observation...]
Read the whole article: this could not have been unintentional plagiarism. Stick a fork in this guy. His career is over.
[Perhaps his career will revive in 24 business hours.]
I would rather jump into traffic than believe this is true...but the evidence appears to be pretty overwhelming.
As a writer, I consider plagiarism to be the one unforgiveable crime in the business. You just don't steal someone else's toil. If you can't write it yourself, find something else to do.
So this really, really, really sucks if it turns out to be true.
[It already turned out to be true that WILLIAM RIVERS PITT is a serial fabulist. He makes things up hoping for that Hail Mary Pass that will miracle himself into unearned fame. Unfortunately his one big shot completely backfired on him and he ended up a Web laughingstock. Okay, on to the other DUmmies who somehow did not think it odd that a serial fabulist would be condemning a serial plagiarist...]
Don't they know they'll get caught?
[It didn't seem to bother WILLIAM RIVERS PITT.]
Read the full article. There are multiple cases of Hedges doing this.
[Almost as many cases as WILLIAM RIVERS PITT making things up.]
