Reader: Woody Paige should get more than a wrist slap from Denver Post for lifting quotes

Yesterday's post about Denver Post columnist Woody Paige's apology for reprinting quotes from a SportsBusiness Journal piece without attribution drew an angry response from one reader.

His view? An I'm-sorry and a published correction aren't nearly enough given the size and scope of the issue.

Jeffrey writes:

Dean Singleton, Greg Moore and/or Scott Monserud need to give their reasoning for not firing, or even suspending, Woody over this gross and egregious "mistake." It's the cardinal rule of journalism, and any reputable news organization would make the punishment swift and well known. Or at least actually apply a punishment. Running a correction and updating the online version is done for a typo or bad information from a source -- not an obvious committing of plagiarism. Instead it's a pat on the back and them saying, "Try better next time not to do that." Or is the Post not a reputable news organization?
