When Citations Matter

A former New York times editor is being called to task for improper source attribution in her newly published book, “Merchants of Truth,” which is critical of the news business and specifically the New York Times, Washington Post, Vice and BuzzFeed.

According to the AP article linked below, Abramson on a news program Wednesday night said, “All I can tell you is I certainly didn’t plagiarize in my book and there’s 70 pages of footnotes showing where I got the information.” She and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, have promised to investigate the complaints.
