Miami New Times has reported that Posner, who was fired from the Daily Beast last month after Slate's Jack Shafer revealed Posner had lifted from the Miami Herald, also plagiarized passages of his latest book, Miami Babylon (including from New Times itself). In a blog response, Posner says New Times' reporting is part of a "coordinated effort to destroy" his book.
