Plagiarism Today Plagiarized in a Plagiarism Atonement Essay
Jonathan Bailey May 9, 2022
Not bad, but I would have gone with a headline like “Plagiarist Plagiarizes Plagiarism Today in Her Plagiarism Atonement Essay (That Was Plagiarized).”
… In Google News, I ran across an article written by author Jumi Bello
Jumi Bello is a Person of Intersectionality.
entitled, “I Plagiarized Parts of My Debut Novel. Here’s Why.” …
Looking at the comparisons, it’s pretty obvious that she copied my words and then rewrote them to fit her style and message. Specifically, she’d actually copied from two articles I wrote on that subject, one for my site in 2011 and another for Turnitin in 2019.
In short, Bello, an author who admitted to plagiarizing in her now-cancelled debut novel, wrote an article about the experience and, in that article, included poor paraphrasing without attribution of an article that I wrote over a decade ago.
It’s a moment that even 16 years of work in this field did not prepare me for.
