Second half of article plagiarizes first half

SCRAPERTON - The first half of a blog post written by one author was copied and reprinted in whole as the second half by the same author, according to the blog editor.

"Blogosphere officials are looking into the incident to gather information and decide if a ruling is warranted," said an Internet spokesperson.
