I haven’t heard of someone doing plagiarism in years.
Don’t people know that the internet exists?
Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson has been relentlessly roasted by social media, after evidence emerged that she plagiarized material for her new book. Abramson says she will “review” the passages in question.
The author’s recently released literary offering, ‘Merchants of Truth,’ has been billed as “the definitive in-the-room account of the revolution that has swept the news industry.” But it appears that at least part of her “in-the-room account” was lifted from other sources without providing proper attribution.
After flipping through the new book, Vice News correspondent Michael Moynihan tweeted a now-viral thread, which compared excerpts from ‘Merchants of Truth’ with material from the New Yorker, the Columbia Journalism Review, Time Out magazine – and even a master’s thesis.
Oh she’s a merchant alright.
If you get my drift.
I mean she’s a kike.

I’m going to speculate that she didn’t actually write the book. She probably had aides write it. Because she has to know that plagiarism is a really, really big deal, and that if you do it once, it destroys your entire career.
