Newsweek has some background about the plagiarism at CBS:

“The episode started last week, when Couric and the show’s producers gathered for a regular weekly meeting to discuss possible topics for the ‘Notebook,’ according to a CBS News official and others who declined to be identified elaborating on the embarrassing development. These sources said that the idea for the library essay arose at the meeting. The CBS official expressed uncertainty about whether the now-fired producer alluded to the Zaslow column during the discussions. Whatever the case, the producer involved went off after the meeting to write the essay for Couric.”
