(Newser) – The Daily Beast's chief investigative writer who "unintentionally" lifted lines from a Miami Herald article has apparently done the same thing on 4 previous occasions, cribbing from the Herald and Texas Lawyer. Gerald Posner is now on suspension from Tina Brown's online news operation, reports Gawker. "I now realize that a method of compiling information that I have used successfully since 1984 obviously does not work," Posner notes in his blog.
