DNA sends the right message

DNA swung into action right after they were informed that one of their chaps had plagiarised content from a Cricinfo article, and today they've issued an apology in their sports section. I couldn't find it online, so I'll reproduce it here:
DNA (Daily News & Analysis) would like to apologise to its readers and for an article published on page 32 of its newspaper on November 17, 2005, "Has the worm finally turned for Yuvraj." We have since discovered certain portions of the article have been lifted from another article on the subject published by, "From potential to performance" dated November 16. The author has been asked for an explanation.
Also, I am told by a friend who works there that a strong message on this matter has been sent to the staff as well. Well done, DNA.
