Public editor lectures 'Pasadena Now'

"Rewriting someone else's stories is one thing. Simply stealing them word for word is another," writes Lawrence Wilson, public editor of the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group. His point is directed at Pasadena Now, the site that got some attention last year for seeking to hire a reporter based in India to cover Pasadena. Wilson catches them in a rip job from the Pasadena Star-News, where politics blogger Todd Ruiz also gets in a few licks.
