Doublespeak of the Day

Politico Reporter Dismissed for Plagiarism. Kendra Marr was found to play loose and carefree in at least seven articles and had to leave Politico.

But what takes the cake is a quote from Politico’s memo announcing the less than great departure of Miss Marr:

There were instances of language and ideas published in at least seven of her POLITICO stories that borrowed without attribution from work that had been published previously in other publications.

Would that be like borrowing money from a wallet without asking for permission by the owner? As in THEFT?

  1. “borrowed without attribution from work that had been published previously in other publications” is just the definition of plagiarism, which is idea theft. I don’t see any doublespeak in them defining exactly what she did. The fact is that even though neither one of us may agree with what they believe or write, most of them are at least setting down their own work, and not even they can just ignore it when one of their own gets sloppy about copying and not citing sources.
