Reporting, Recycling

On Wednesday, the LA Times carried an interview with director Martin Scorcese by reporter Paul Lieberman that raised eyebrows. No, it wasn't invented, nor was it merely lifted from another source. As this report says, since the director was unavailable for interviews, the intrepid reporter merely recycled quotes from his earlier interview with Scorsese that ran in February, when The Aviator was nominated for Best Picture. A search for the interview on the site proved unfruitful; perhaps the editors have decided to shun recycling as a policy.
