It's a matter of degree. The media doesn't have to credit the first person to remark that Robin Thicke's Zoot suit looked like Beetlejuice to avoid plagiarism, because it was a clear and obvious callback.

But on the oil spill callback and the TP 'Natucket sleigh ride' are some wonky and little observed comparisons. If there's a case that both were just sitting there in the Zietgiest obvious to all, or a BUNCH of journalists were simultaneously making similar observations, I'm all ears. Looks more like Maddow['s minions] found something in the blogosphere that looked wonky, snarky and clever and snatched it and put it on air as journalistic effort.

Kind of like when Whitlock used to publish planet thread discussions as articles under his name [TrINT, etc.].
