REPORT: Monica Crowley Also Plagiarized Her Columns

From CNN’s KFile team:

Monica Crowley, Donald Trump’s pick for a senior national security communications role, plagiarized multiple sources in some of her columns for the Washington Times, a CNN KFile review has found. CNN’s KFile reviewed close to 50 of Crowley’s columns over the past five years, finding examples of plagiarism in seven. Crowley is a columnist for the newspaper and served as its online opinion editor.

Crowley’s work has come under scrutiny after a CNN KFile investigation found more than 50 instances of plagiarism in her 2012 book. On Monday, Politico Magazine reported sections of Crowley’s Phd dissertation for Columbia University has been plagiarized.

HarperCollins announced on Tuesday it would no longer sell Crowley’s book until revisions were made to properly attribute sources. In her columns, Crowley, a conservative author and longtime Fox News personality, copied lines from Fox News, Reuters, Commentary Magazine, the Washington Times itself, World Net Daily, and the Associated Press.

Screenshots of the plagiarized portions are at the link. She’s got her gig with Trump.

  • Tiger Quinn

    Man, it’s almost like these people should be vetted or something.

    • Gustav2

      They are vetted, by their own kind.

    • MBear

      By ‘vetted’ you mean “checked out by a 50+ year old guy driving a Corvette”?

    • Rex

      Someone once mentioned “extreme vetting” but I think he’s forgotten all about that.

      • Frostbite

        Heck, I’d settle for “light vetting”, they can’t even pass that.

        • The_Wretched

          I’d settle for a first base vetting in the back of a car.

      • canoebum

        Extreme vetting? That only applies to people who aren’t named regularly in the pages of Forbes. Have we ever seen such a parade of greedy scoundrels, cheats, liars, thieves, hucksters and flunkies in our entire history? This is a national catastrophe.

    I’d say that it’s only okay when a Republican does it… but I can’t even think of any Democrat who has done this kind of shit.

    • johncAtl

      There have been some Democrats who have been caught plagiarizing in the past. Joe Biden dropped out of the presidential race in 1987 because of it.

      How Democrats and Republican deal with it is definitely different.

  • Blake Jordan

    Can’t any of these blond, right wing whores think for themselves?

    • Bared Bear

      It’s difficult when your nethers are being grabbed constantly.

    • perversatile

      “Because I’m blonde I don’t have to think, I talk like a baby and never pay for drinks…”

      • ETownCanuck

        Upvote for the Julie Brown reference 🙂

    • Cousin Bleh

      All those chemicals seep into their brains.

      • Johnny Wyeknot

        Jean Harlow’s death comes to mind.

    • NowVoyager

      Bottle blonde more likely. I doubt that her carpet matches her curtains.

    • TrollopeReader

      um, no!

  • Silver Badger

    Another used up blond. They must give great showers to the pissant.

    • Gustav2

      • Silver Badger

        No, I meant pissant.
        USvulgar slang
        an insignificant or contemptible person or thing.
        worthless; contemptible.

        • TrollopeReader

          squashable, cf. cockroach.

  • olandp

    It is the Washington Times, the Moonie paper, so she should be in line for a raise.

  • kareemachan

    She’s not only partisan bitch, but a lazy partisan bitch.

  • Mike C

    Stole her act from Ann Coulter as well.

    • David F.

      As seen on Twitter – Ann Coulter is what you get when you feed Kellyanne Conway after midnight.

  • dcurlee

    Was Melania giving her writing tips

    • TrollopeReader

      Only in that Melania gave Monica “How to Write Like Michelle In Three Easy Steps” ….

  • rusty57

    They all do it. some are just better at it than others.

  • rusty57

    Why do any heavy lifting when you be…

  • William

    Monica gives dumb blondes a bad name.

  • beariac

    She’s got her gig with Trump.

  • Paula

    Let’s see, lying..yes, cheating..yes, spouting crazy political nonsense..yes, greedy..yes. She just passed the republican test. She is a republican

  • TrollopeReader

    But, but Reince is apoplectic about the Russian report. It’s fake! It’s not true!! We stand by Monica and her fine work!!

  • Natty Enquirer

    How else is a bimbo gonna get ahead?

    • Miji

      Pee on your boss? All the best people are saying that will advance your career in the Trump administration.

  • Steverino

    She’s never had an original thought in her head.

  • Miji

    So apparently no one was really reading what she wrote critically until now? I can understand that a bit as the conservative drivel that most of these nitwits spew sounds the same, but you’d think that a paper would have some quality control or especially one would think a thesis would get some greater scrutiny.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    I can’t even pretend to be surprised by any of Trump’s swamp things anymore. It’s actually exhausting pretending to even be shocked, then again, perhaps that’s the plan. To so inundate the media and citizenry with so much bovine refuse that they’ll just shut down and let it happen, much like drowning. Only, in this case, you continue to come back and drown again, over and over and over; for at least the next four years. smh

    • JWC

      it6 is really hard to stay focused on the main theme(??????) amid this bnlinding shit storm

  • Charlie In SF

    Well, she did start out as Nixon’s intern

    • Lars Littlefield

      Shirley Ewegest. She was born in 1968, so she would have been 12-16 years old as an intern. But hey, it sounds good.

      • Charlie In SF

        It was long after he left office and just before his death.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Okely Dokely. I did’t see anything in her bio, but as long as she was shilling for Nixon before 1994. Otherwise she was apprenticing for a dead man. 🙂

          BTW: I’m not trying to cast asparagus on your aspersions, you know I love you, right?

  • Richard, another Canuck

    Another graduate of Trump U. She majored in copy n paste.

  • Cosmo Tupper

    She was cutting and pasting with scissors and glue before there were PCs. #cutandpastebitch

  • Cosmo Tupper

    He drained the swamp alright……so he could collect the scum off the bottom and insert into his cabinet.

  • All these years and no one noticed? I knew there wasn’t much in the way of editing any more but this is absurd!
