Missoulian.com blatantly steals Roanoke.com code

Missoulian.com - a Western Montana newspaper web site - has blatantly ripped of the website design of the award winning Roanoke.com website of the local Roanoke Times. A previous design team employee of Roanoke.com shows specific evidence of the theft on his blog pointing out that his initials are in the Missoulian code from a bug he worked out and commented on while working on Roanoke.com. In other words: the lazy, thieving jerks didn't even read the code they were stealing closely enough to hide the fact that they were doing it! What a hack job. I wonder if they copy and paste their journalism too? Pathetic.

The screen grab you show of the Missoulian is slightly different than the one I have linked in my entry on the topic. Though they've changed the colors, the CSS and layout is still a clear theft of Roanoke.com.
