Master of His Domain

On a talk show, there needs to be a respect between a guest and a host.  It’s the same respect a guest and a host would show each other in a home.  A host implicitly agrees to be cordial and inviting and in turn the guest implicitly agrees not to be a total dickbag.

So apparently, there’s this guy named Tom Perkins and he has his own little video blog called FilmXTRA.  He got busted for ripping lines from reviews of other people wrote (read Tyler Foster’s amazing coverage over at The Following Preview).  But let’s stop right there–

I’ve never heard  of anyone plagiarizing an opinion.  Plagiarizing fiction?  Sure.  Plagiarizing research?  Of course.  But an opinion? Everyone has an opinion.  It’s even a saying, and not an expression, but a statement of fact.
