Plagiarism Scandal at Politico

Oct 14, 2011  •  Post A Comment

"Politico says a reporter has resigned after editors determined she had plagiarized stories about transportation, most recently from a New York Times article," reports The Huffington Post Media blog.

The article goes on to say, "Editor-in-chief John F. Harris and executive editor Jim VandeHei said in an online note that the stories by Kendra Marr ‘borrowed from the work of others, without attribution, in ways which we cannot defend and will not tolerate.’ "

The Politico editors were tipped to the plagiarism by an email sent to them on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011, by a Times writer, the story says.

A voicemail left on Marr’s cellphone was not returned, that article noted.
