Skip to comments.Is WND's Jerome Corsi a plagiarist? (Zot's all)
Posted on 12/22/2011 6:46:41 PM PST by Pharnsworth
World Net Daily writer Jerome Corsi may have really stepped in it this time...
Loren Collins, who writes at Barackryphal, just uncovered what could shred whatever little credibility Corsis had.
Loren found that a Dec. 19 article published in WND, headlined, Obamas Legacy of Broken Promises in Kenya seems to have passages in it that were pulled partially or wholly from articles that appeared in the London Evening Standard July 25, 2008 and a May 2011 African news service story.
In his article, Corsi says all but two of the quotes in question came from his inside sources in Kenya.
But as Loren points out, most of Corsis borrowed material seems to have come from quite visible sources:
"In short, every single quote or finding specifically attributed to Corsis unnamed researchers was lifted from an earlier publication by another news agency."
You really need to go to Lorens Web site to read this; he even reprints Corsis article and color codes the questionable passages by their probable origin...

I smell George Soros!
didn’t effect Lichmyballs or whatever his name is from the NYSlimes when he plagiarized BS on Issa...forgot- thats accepted “reporting” on the left...
Corsi’s a truther, so phock him....who gives a shiite.
He better not be one! He’s been a FReeper for many long years!!!
Has he posted lately?
I think Rush might be a FReeper.
Are your a troll or a blogpimp? Or both?
Why would you think we would be interested in some blog called Barackryphal?
Dr. Jerome Corsi is held in very high esteem here. Newbie blogpimps are not.
Not that I know of for a certainty. I’m sure both of ‘em have lurked from time to time. I’m pretty certain Corsi posted at least back in the 1998-2000 era. I’ve never seen Rush post, but have heard him take the same point of view expressed here from time to time.
It is a hit piece by the left.
Are you lying or just simply wrong?
I think i corresponed with WF Buckley here on FR. Of course Limbaugh monitors this site. Its probably where he found the thread of “Post your Kerry Girlyman Pictures here” that i ran. It had something like 30,000 hits and some of the funniest posts i’ve ever seen.
Looks like you have a slight advantage senioritywise on this site. I lurked from 1998-2000 and have had a ball most all that time until now. Really miss some of them “old time FReepers,” however. Some of the flame wars during that time period made spectators out of a lot of us. Sadly, several of the best, most loyal FReepers have gone to righteous conservative heaven!!!
Corsi could not be reached for comment as he was speaking at the Big Foot Convention.
Welcome to FReeRepublic.
Ping. Your “old pal” loren (LoL) is the subject of an FR thread.
Jerry Corsi did a bang-up job uncovering the fraud that is Barak Obama and nothing will ever change that.
