CNN fires serial plagiarist

CNN

CNN has terminated news editor Marie-Louise Gumuchian after discovering “multiple instances of plagiarism,” it says in an editors’ note Friday. Gumuchian was based in London.

An unpublished story flagged last week during our editing process led to an internal investigation that uncovered other examples in about 50 published stories, and our investigation is ongoing.

CNN says it has “removed the instances of plagiarism found in her pieces” and “In some cases, we’ve chosen to delete an entire article.”
