In my previous Dr. Freelance post, “Would a magazine editor steal my story idea?” I wondered aloud whether it would be in poor taste to say that Cooks Source had gotten its “just desserts” after the recent plagiarism-non-apology-scandal that had the freelance world in a tizzy. (Yeah, yeah, I’m well aware that the correct expression should use the word deserts. Cut the doctor some creative slack, eh?)
Over at my other blog, Jake’s Take, I decided that it’s not in poor taste…and in fact, in this post I conclude that freelancers owe a debt of gratitude to Cooks Source editor Judith Griggs.
