Chris Arnold of 105.3 The Fan and CBS Fort Worth committed one of the most blatant acts of plagiarism recently seen in sports media. Arnold lifted nearly an entire article on Tony Romo from a Football Outsiders writer.
Surely Arnold was disciplined and removed from his post for committing one of the worst crimes in journalism, right? Not quite. Arnold received a suspension which lasted all of one week according to Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News. He's set to resume his regular duties this week.
Is this how we should treat plagiarizers? Is this the message we should be teaching to aspiring journalists?no comments
