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.

I only read Fark posts of Tweets that link to FB posts about Buzzfeed articles that reference MSN reprints of Washington Post articles that are follow-ups to DailyBeast pieces.

Hey, Vodka starts to taste better when you run it through several coal filters first too.

This headline left me inconsolable. I'm glad I have my therapy dynamite monkey here to wring out the tears from my Guinness bar towel. I spilled samples from my hot cocoa box when a Farkette inserted an unwanted finger into my dog's steak...

Welcome to banniation, tubgirl. Gorgor and Beavits were the same alt! Notice that you never saw them standing next to Jesus at the same time. Study it out.

Buzzfeed has failed to mention that each of the articles on question were authored by a single individual: Ryan Broderick. Readers are further left in the dark as to the state of Mr. Broderick's continued employment at Buzzfeed. (Needless the say, termination would be the correct action here).

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

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.

There was a guy in my lab like that. I confronted him several times about it. The faculty mostly have English as a second or third language, so he never got caught. I didn't want to tattle on him, but we'd have a little argument almost every time he put out research notes or did presentations. Then one year they announced they'd be using anti-plagiarism software and poof he was gone. I don't know for sure that he got caught but he disappeared pretty suddenly in the middle of that semester.

He might have been gobbled up by a rhinoceros. I hear it's a thing that happens.


There is a new zoo near here 😱

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
