    Wandering Eye: Community defends officer in Freddie Gray case, the Sy Hersh saga continues, and more
    Sy Hersh's big bin Laden story in the London Review of Books has drawn lots of ire and pushback from other media (Slate has slapped at it five times already). But A.J. Hillhouse thinks the legendary journalist got it right—because he copied her. In this Raw Story piece Hillhouse, an academic and former blogger on national security issues, says there are many similarities between Hersh's opus and a post she wrote in 2011 on her blog, The Spy Who Billed Me. "It's nice to see something come out that supports and confirms my work," she said in an interview with Raw Story. "But it's a mixed bag in that it was rather shocking to see that there was absolutely no acknowledgment of the prior work. Because there's no way he could have done research on this topic and not come across my work." Hersh has basically brushed her off, telling Democracy Now that his story can't have been plagiarism because it is 10,000 words. (Edward Ericson Jr.)
