Horwitz_Sari_large -- The Washington Post revealed on Wednesday that two of its articles about the Arizona shooting were plagiarized from the Arizona Republic newspaper. In an editor's note apologizing for the plagiarism, the Post said that the articles--by reporter Sari Horwitz, who has won multiple Pulitzer Prizes--"contained substantial material that was borrowed and duplicated, without attribution," from the Republic. One article, published on March 4, lifted two paragraphs from the Republic's story about the criminal charges against alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner. The next article, published on March 10, was even more plagiarized from the Arizona paper. The Post said that 10 out of the 15 paragraphs of the Republic story were lifted. The paper did not identify Horwitz by name, but linked to both stories, which contained her byline.
