October was top month for plagiarism in 2011

Journalism in October 2011 was marred by more incidences of plagiarism and fabrication incidents than any other month this year, according to Craig Silverman at the Poynter Institute. There were nine incidents in October, coming from sources ranging from wire services to student newspapers, making it the worst month on record since Silverman started collecting data in 2005. For example, the Irish Examiner suspended its international affairs columnist after it was revealed that he lifted work from publications like Spiked and Salon. [Poynter]
