Plagiarism is every editor's nightmare
- John Zakarian, editor, Hartford Courant

Carrie Twomey, editor • 2 October 2005

It has been brought to our attention that the content of Michael Youlton's articles, "The Times Are A-Changing, Part 1 & 2", were plagiarised from articles written by Dr. Dion Dennis: Katrina-Baghdad and The Christo-Terminator, published on CTheory website in August 2005. They have now been removed from the Blanket website.

We apologize unreservedly for publishing these articles.

Again, we offer our sincere apologies to our readers, to Dr Dion Dennis, and to the editors at CTheory website.

The Blanket - A Journal of Protest & Dissent



The reason plagiarism is wrong in a newspaper setting is because as journalists and writers, we all have a duty to be truthful, honest and sincere. Our writing is set on an honor system. As editor, I trust that all my writers are being honest and using their own writing to express ideas in columns or from writers attributing sources in their stories. When this honor system is broken, my job as an editor becomes tough, as I must question each and every time a writer submits their work.
