In an Oct 2011 NYTimes review of a bio of Pauline Kael we find this:
"The most serious brief against Kael’s professionalism, however, is Kellow’s discovery that she ripped off the research of a U.C.L.A. academic, Howard Suber, for “Raising Kane,” her lengthy 1971 essay about the making of “Citizen Kane.” Adding to that infraction, her piece contained many factual errors of her own, all undetected by New Yorker fact checkers and all contrived to reinforce her anti-auteurist argument that the screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, not Orson Welles, was the movie’s principal author. “Raising Kane” was omitted from the Library of America volume for reasons of space, according to Schwartz’s introduction, but Kellow’s account suggests it should have been eliminated in any event for its improprieties."

Esp notable since her leading charge contra OW was for ripping off Mank by claiming a co-credit, and look what Pauline is up to!
If you do a search for PK and Howard Suber, then you'll come upon recent interviews with HS saying that she'd "raped" him with this rip.
