Ann Coulter's syndicate expects report on plagiarism allegations

Coulter lashes back at the NY Post.
Editor & Publisher reports on the official reaction to the allegations of plagiarism against Ann Coulter:
NEW YORK--Universal Press Syndicate has requested a copy of a report about Ann Coulter's alleged plagiarism, according to a post on the TPMmuckraker.com blog. Meanwhile, in her latest column, Coulter has hit back at the newspaper that aired the latest plagiarism charges -- but did not refute them.

The report was conducted by John Barrie, creator of the iThenticate plagiarism-probing system. A New York Post story this Sunday said Barrie found several examples of alleged plagiarism in Coulter's new "Godless" book as well as in her Universal column. [E&P]
TPMmuckraker may have helped set the Universal Press Syndicate investigation in motion with his call to Kathie Kerr of UPS.

True to form, in her latest column, Coulter accuses the NY Post of shaking her down for protection money, but does not address the substance of the plagiarism allegations.
