NEW YORK The deputy editorial page editor of the Rocky Mountain News in Denver has resigned following revelations that he used a phrase in an editorial that came from a Web site, as well as other elements from a Washington Post story.

In a note to readers published Friday, News Editor John Temple explained that Deputy Editorial Page Editor Thom Beal had left the paper. He stated that a July 16 editorial Beal wrote about former ambassador Joe Wilson included a passage "based on a [July 10] Washington Post story" and "a phrase that should have been attributed to The Daily Howler Web site."

here's a link to the offending article, and the note from Temple..
