D.O. columnist plagiarizes work
The Daily Orange learned Wednesday that one of its featured opinion columnists plagiarized at least five columns that appeared in the paper since April 2006.
Cortland Bradford, a sophomore information studies and technology major, will no longer be permitted to contribute to The D.O.
Bradford, whose columns ran every Tuesday this semester, plagiarized from the Chicago-Sun Times, the Washington Post, the University of Illinois’ student paper The Daily Illini and the Texas A&M University Web site.
The D.O. does not condone any form of plagiarism and will continue striving to serve the Syracuse University community with the highest form of journalistic integrity.
No fewer than three editors read op-ed columns before they go to print. The D.O. performs as much fact checking as is possible for a student newspaper. Routine fact checking, however stringent, would not necessarily reveal plagiarism.
