I'm astounded at how blatant the plagarism in episode 3 is! The host is reading, almost word for word, from an article about the case written for Rolling Stone! Using someone else's work and writing and claiming it as your own is shameful! I'd love to find out if the rest of her episodes were ripped off of someone else's work but I'm not going to give her the extra downloads to find out.
Plagiarism. Read nearly word for word from the Rolling Stone article of December 18, 2013.
Every few sentences there is a slight variation, but otherwise the plagiarism is blatant. This is read word for word from Rolling Stone December 18, 2013. People are remarking on her research and organization, but you should know this is not her work, and she does not cite her source document.
I would rather listen to someone who had done some personal investigation, instead of just reading to me. This is probably why she speaks so fast. There are many better produced podcasts out there.
Plagiarizes her “work”
Episode 2 from 12/10/17, “BFF Murder,” is a retelling of a January 8, 2004 LA Weekly article entitled “Two Against One.” Episode 3 from 12/24/17, “Killer Party” (which has since been removed), heavily plagiarizes a December 18, 2013 Rolling Stone article, “Tyler Hadley’s Killer Party.” This isn’t a rookie mistake; it is blatant plagiarism that could get you fired if you were an actual journalist, and it could get you expelled if you were a college student at an institution with an honor code. If you can’t research and write your own material, perhaps podcasting isn’t something you should pursue.
