Daily Beast Contributor Resigns After She’s Caught Plagiarizing

Lizzie Crocker Begone Thot

On Sunday, Daily Beast reporter Lizzie Crocker was forced to resign after she was outed for plagiarizing an article first posted on the Weekly Standard by Alice B. Lloyd.

Maybe she can plagiarize a WikiHow on how to get out of hot water.

The article in question, “How Katie Roiphe Became Feminism’s Nemesis-in-Chief,” lifted entire paragraphs from Lloyd’s article about the #MeToo movement and the ongoing witch hunt for male sex predators in the media.

Lloyd’s original January 11 article concerned Katie Roiphe, who planned to reveal the identity of the author of the “Shitty Media Men” list of male journalists accused of sexual harassment, assault, and rape. Most of the men on the list, which circulated privately before it was leaked on social media and Reddit, are employed by mainstream news publishers.

Moira Donnegan, the author of the list, identified herself on The Cut on Wednesday before she could be outed by anyone else.

Following the publication of Lloyd’s Weekly Standard article, Crocker penned her own article to weigh in on the situation, which lifted words line-by-line—and even entire paragraphs—from the Lloyd’s story.

The instance of plagiarism was brought to light by New York Times contributor Thomas Chatterton Williams, who made an issue of it on Twitter—with screenshot evidence comparing the two pieces.

After Crocker was outed, the Daily Beast removed the article in its entirety, and replaced it with an editor’s note stating that “the story published about author Katie Roiphe violated Daily Beast’s Code of Ethics and Standards and has been removed.”

TheWrap learned on Sunday night that Crocker resigned, with a statement from Daily Beast editor-in-chief John Avlon.

“Plagiarism is unacceptable. Lizzie Crocker has offered to resign and her resignation was accepted,” said Avlon in a statement.

“Though this was a difficult decision, we take plagiarism seriously, and will not allow the hard-earned trust we’ve built with our millions of loyal readers to be compromised,” added the editor.

“When we became aware of this incident on Saturday, we took swift and decisive action to verify the extent of the plagiarism, and deleted the article with an editors’ note,” said Avlon, adding that a more thorough investigation of Crocker’s work revealed no other instances of plagiarism.

“But one incident is enough,” he said.

    What makes plagiarizing puzzling is that modern tools make it so easy to catch, that anyone who engages in the practice is simply out of touch and not keeping up with current trends.

    Or, as someone else once wrote, “What makes plagiarizing puzzling is that modern tools make it so easy to catch, that anyone who engages in the practice is simply out of touch and not keeping up with current trends.”

    Please remove Getting or She’s from the title. 🐸
    At my graduation, from a very prestigious university, seven female students were not allowed to graduate due to plagiarizing their work. There was no punishment, university administration has raved all year about the Psy department, for the first time in history, had more females than males and, did not want that win for feminism to be tarnished. They thought it better to hush it up and let them redo their papers. They then got their degree as if it never happened. Damn that patriarchy, ML King did not have to redo his papers. 👊😁👌
