Imagistics4511Imagine - what if we ineffective little bloggers could get Coulter's book pulled?  By now, you know that The Rude Pundit and Raw Story have caught Coulter red-handed - much of her "book" is taken from other sources but not attributed - this is known as PLAGIARISM.  And you may remember that Little Brown pulled Kaavya Viswanathan's first (and last) novel after they caught her lifting large portions from two books by Megan F. McCafferty.

Other plagiarizers haven't fared so well either.   RedState's Ben Domenich was pushed resigned from the WaPo after he was caught playing stenographer.  The Weekly Standard has made a cottage industry out of pummeling Doris Kearns Goodwin because she didn't have quite enough footnotes.

I'm sure the 'ol Standard will immediately call for Coulter's book to be pulled.

Well, of course they won't, but we sure can.  Her publisher is:

Crown Publishing Group
Random House, Inc.
1745 Broadway
New York, NY 10019
(212) 782-9000

The email is here, but it's probably better to drop them a postcard.  Or send a stern letter.  What do you think?  Will Crown pull the book, or take the money and run?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
