Another One Bites the Dust

Hiya Ethics,

Wired has fired reporter Nic Cavell for “a pattern of plagiarism in four of his stories.”

WIRED has investigated suspect copy before. In 2012, science journalist Charles Seife revealed that 17 blog posts written by Jonah Lehrer for the magazine had problems ranging from plagiarism to recycling to factual issues.

Try to work this into a conversation this weekend!

best,

k
