No mention that all of those articles were written by the same person - Ryan Broderick. And no mention of Ryan's current employment status, he should be gone.

Gone.  I'm sure we're about to be subjected to a variety of articles, books and eventually a movie about him, just like Stephen Glass

Well, that was going to be my first question, so thank you. Not a surprise, frankly.

My experience with plagiarists (which is deeper than I would wish) is that (1) they never get caught the first time: somebody notices something in one article, so you start reviewing, and you find that it's just how they operate; and (2) after they caught, they don't stop. It's not like they didn't know the rules, or they did know but now learned they can't get away with it. There is something wrong with the way they are wired, they just can't grok that there is a problem with the behavior.

In my experience in the academic world, faculty rarely want to put anything on a student's transcript, so it's never recorded and the little asshole always get caught again "for the first time."

On a related note, I thought that plagiarism was Buzzfeed's business model?

TL;DR.  Suspected a trick to read stuff I hadn't read before as recycled click bait.
