    President Obama's second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope, attempts to channel the spirit of great American statesmen. But it is one thing to channel the spirit of great men, and quite another to steal words without assigning credit, especially within the confines of a bestselling book. While we should praise the former, we should rightly criticize the latter as a form of intellectual plagiarism. Now, Obama has faced these criticisms before. In early 2008, for example, Hillary Clinton's campaign accused him of plagiarizing a speech by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. In that instance, Washington Times reported the flowing similarities:...

    Islam is a supremacist doctrine that affirms not only Muslim superiority over non-Muslims, but also Arab superiority over other ethnic groups and races. Both Islam's holy texts - the Quran and the Hadith, namely Muhammad's official biography - and scholars are testament to that. Muhammad himself bought, sold and kept African slaves. Historically, Muslims' slave trade of black Africans has been by far the world's greatest numerically and the most long-lasting, spanning over 1400 years (watch the video "The Arab Muslim Slave Trade Of Africans, The Untold Story", by clicking on the link just below this post title). Arab Muslims...

    Jane Goodall Book Held Back After Accusations of Plagiarism Alison Flood 25 March 2013 Leading primatologist Jane Goodall's forthcoming book has been postponed after she was found to have lifted some passages from websites including Wikipedia. An expert asked by the Washington Post to review Goodall's Seeds of Hope, which was due out next month, spotted that some passages in the book echoed various other sources. The paper published a report last week which claimed that at least 12 sections in the book were lifted from other websites, and which included an admission from Goodall of her failure correctly to...
  • Juan Williams Caught in Plagiarism Scandal

    Lefty Fox News analyst Juan Williams is in hot water after it was discovered that a column hed written for a political insider publication contained plagiarized material. According to a report by Salon.com, a Feb. 18 piece that Williams wrote for The Hill newspaper copied almost word-for-word from a study by the far-left Center for American Progress on the subject of immigration and Social Security. Confronted by Salon, Williams blamed his research assistant, a young man who, according to Williams, had submitted the barely altered paragraphs to him for publication in the column: For the full details of the particular...

    In a case of apparent plagiarism, Fox News pundit Juan Williams lifted sometimes word for word from a Center for American Progress report, without ever attributing the information, for a column he wrote last month for The Hill newspaper. Almost two weeks after publication, the column was quietly revised online, with many of the sections rewritten or put in quotation marks, and this time citing the CAP report. It also included an editors note that read: This column was revised on March 2, 2013, to include previously-omitted attribution to the Center for American Progress. But that editors note...

    CNN must be so proud! On Sunday, the self-described most trusted name in news aired a thirteen minute interview with Global Warmingist-in-Chief Al Gore, and although the subject of the sale of Current TV was raised, host Fareed Zakaria didn't ask him one question about al Jazeera's connection to oil (video follows with transcript and commentary): What a Joke! Zakaria Doesn't Ask Gore About Al Jazeera's Connection To Oil! FAREED ZAKARIA: Current TV, a great business deal, but you started it because you wanted to create a greater, well, another liberal voice, a stronger one, an independent voice. Is this...

    The board of education says it has looked into the concerns surrounding two cases of possible plagiarism by Superintendent of Schools Carolyn R. Koos, and is "satisfied that she understands her mistake and will not repeat it," board president Louis Casella said in a statement. "The board has fully expressed and discussed its concerns with the superintendent," Casella said. "Superintendent Koos has apologized for any adverse effect this may have had on the district." NJ.com first reported the possible plagiarism Jan. 10, when a letter sent to the district appeared to be a near word-for-word copy of a Nov. 27...

    Teachers and scholars consider the unattributed use of someone else's words and ideas to be a very serious offense, but the public doesn't seem to mind much, at least when it comes to politics. The incidents of plagiarism and fabrication that forced Joe Biden to quit the 1988 presidential race have drawn little comment since his selection as Barack Obama's vice presidential running matejust as revelations of plagiarism by Stephen Ambrose and Doris Kearns Goodwin scarcely hurt their book sales. In 1987, before Biden quit the race, he called the incidents "a tempest in a teapot." Although most reporters disagreed...

    The Environmental Protection Agency commemorated the start of Hispanic Heritage Month with a picture of Che Guevara and a bit of plagiarism. An internal email obtained by BuzzFeed and distributed to agency employees marking the start of the celebration of Hispanic culture this Saturday, featured the above image of a horse and buggy passing a billboard of the Marxist revolutionary, in addition to a listing of facts about Hispanic culture. Hispanic people are vibrant, socializing and fun loving people, one entry reads. Among various facts associated to this culture is that they have a deep sense of involvement in their...

    Ward Churchill's attorney plans to appeal the fired professor's case to the U.S. Supreme Court after the state's high court ruled Monday in favor of the University of Colorado. In the immediate aftermath of Sept. 11, the firebrand CU professor compared some World Trade Center victims to a notorious Nazi. The Board of Regents fired him in 2007 for academic misconduct after discovering patterns of plagiarism and fabrication in his body of work. Churchill has been trying to get his job back on the Boulder campus, where he taught ethnic studies. He won a lawsuit against the university in 2009....
