Murdoch’s flagship paper steals from blogger

And not just any blogger. Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s moving memorial to Edward Woodward was lifted without so much as a by-your-leave by The Times for it’s obituary page:

They just lifted it from my blog without asking?…?I’m not talking about quotes. Am talking about the entire article. But with edits they made that make me look ill informed and unfeeling.

And if Rupert Murdoch had his way, Edgar would have had to pay to find out he’d been robbed. [HT to @edgarwright on Twitter]
