The Gazette Intern July 14, 2009

Yeah, I’ve been on vacation for the last week. It was amazing, and I haven’t really come closer to answering any of the questions I posed to myself in the last post.

In other news, The Gazette in Colorado Springs, CO recently outed/fired an intern after it was discovered that she was plagiarizing from the New York Times. While this isn’t particularly dramatic, the editor of the Gazette published the intern’s name in the paper’s response to the charges.

While I have my own thoughts on the subject, check out David Mullen and Lauren Fernandez’ co-post about it on David’s blog. They have some great insight and the 100+ comments are certainly thought-provoking.

Be back after work hours to put my own .02 in!
