Cav Daily Fires Two for Plagiarism

Twice in the past few months, the Cavalier Daily has fired writers after it was discovered that they plagiarized substantial portions of articles, according to a November 5 editorial. One undergraduate, Tonya Dawson, wrote seven separate movie and music reviews that took entire paragraphs from publications like the Boston Globe, the Dallas Morning News and Entertainment Weekly. The other student, Demetra Karamanos, used “significant portions” of a Slate article about low-rise jeans. The Honor Committee, by policy, would not comment on whether either student is the subject of an investigation. Kate Andrews has the story in today’s Progress.
