WSJ Reveals Plagiarism

journal logo 2.pngThe Wall Street Journal posted a notice to readers yesterday revealing that a November 10 “New Global Indian” online column by freelance writer Mona Sarika had “been found to contain information that was plagiarized from several publications, including the Washington Post, Little India, India Today and San Francisco magazine.”

Further:

“In the column, ‘Homeward Bound,’ about H-1B visa holders returning to India, Ms. Sarika also re-used direct quotes from other publications, without attribution, and changed the original speakers’ names to individuals who appear to be fabricated.”

The Journal has taken down the article, which was Sarika’s only story for the paper. Sarika blogged on The Huffington Post about India, Pakistan and Iran over the summer, and wrote this article for Foreign Policy in October. Her HuffPo bio says she’s a graduate student from India living in New York.
