Plagiarism At The Washington Post

The Washington Post has a mini-scandal on its hands. It seems that they had to acknowledge that their Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Sari Horwitz had lifted copy from the Arizona Republic without attribution. In order words, she plagiarized it.

Plagiarism is both cheating and cutting corners in your research. It should call into question the rest of the plagiarist's work.

Sari Horwitz is the co-author with James Grimaldi of the Washington Post's anti-gun screed (or investigation as they call it) The Hidden Life of Guns. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?


  1. There's something fishy going on with comments to the plagarism announcement-the numbers keep going up and then getting reset to zero.

  2. But wasn't the Hidden Life of Guns plagiarized from a Brady press release?
