Monica Crowley, Donald Trump’s pick to be head of communications for national security, not only plagiarized parts of her Ph.D dissertation, but also plagiarized material for many of her Washington Times columns.
CNN’s KFile revealed that around 50 of Crowley’s columns over the past five years were plagiarized in some form. During that time, Crowley served as a columnist and as an online opinion editor for the paper.
Even Crowley’s 2012 book came under fire for being heavily plagiarized. Publisher HaprerCollins announced on Tuesday that it would no longer sell her book until revisions were made to properly credit her sources.
In Crowley’s columns, she stole material from Fox News, Reuters, Commentary Magazine, The Washington Times, World Net Daily, and the Associated Press.
The Times decided to cooperate with CNN and editor-in-chief Christopher Dolan asked CNN’s KFile to pass on all material that is in question so that they can properly review it.
