Daily Beast reporter resigns after plagiarism revealed


A veteran reporter for The Daily Beast has resigned after it was revealed that she plagiarized large portions of a recent article from The Weekly Standard.

A contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine first noticed the striking similarities between articles written by the Daily Beast’s Lizzie Crocker and The Weekly Standard’s Alice Boyd, saying Crocker “just straight up copy and pasted” Boyd’s exact wording from a Jan. 11 story into her Jan. 12 story on writer Katie Roiphe.
