Casting the first stone. A favourite pastime of News Corp types is pointing out the regular ripping-off Daily Mail Australia does of its stories. The Daily Telegraph's digital editor Peter Brown will, on occasion, run the Mail's stories through a plagiarism checker to see how much they've taken from the Tele and tweet the results, and the Herald Sun's chief of staff Paul Tatnell last night tweeted about the quick turnaround at the Mail, rewriting the Hun's front page splash before it even hit newsstands:

    I know we’re talking about channel 10 here, but you’d think the people at 7 who have spent countless hours of promo time during costly major sporting events on pushing such failures as Zumbo’s Just Desserts, Cannonball and Australian Spartan would be worth a bit of sacking…
