Wingnut Monica Crowley Plagiarizing Again

She's one of the worst out there, blatantly dishonest and never, ever entertaining. I mean, if you're going to be a wingnut, at least be funny, right? I've seen some of the stuff at "23/6" and I think it's pedestrian garbage. I don't think it's any good at all, but that's only on the times I've seen their content and none of it has ever interested me. How bad is it when Monica Crowley get's caught stealing your stuff, though?
A few weeks ago, the site 23/6 made a parody of the “You Can’t Have Alex” ad. The parody featured Laurie Kilmartin, who explained today, “We called it ‘John McCain, Meet William,’ with me as the mom and my son as ‘William.’” But on right-wing radio host Monica Crowley’s June 21 radio show, Crowley took credit for Kilmartin’s parody ad, claiming she made the ad to make fun of

She began tearing apart the MoveOn ad and she played our parody ad as she went to commercial, without crediting us. … When Monica came back from commercial, she played our parody again but this time she claimed she created it. “We put together a little spoof there of that where the woman holds up her baby…”

Slate fills us in on her previous thievery...
