Attack of the Clones: Bad journalism about Hirst plagiarism "claims"

Paddy Johnson points to this terrible Guardian article that doesn't distinguish between legal claims for copyright and artists whining that they "did it first." Hell, one artist admits he didn't do it first but only had the idea. Presumably Damien Hirst stole it from his mind. Most of the Guardian's examples were spoon-fed to it by "a group campaigning for traditional artistry." Mainstream journalists are now worse than people used to complain about bloggers being when it comes to not looking behind a source.
