Star-Telegram TV critic resigns after plagiarism inquiry

Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Star-Telegram editors launched an investigation after a reader noticed that a Nov. 10 story by Ken Parish Perkins included a paragraph without attribution that appeared verbatim in Entertainment Weekly. Editors then found several stories and columns over about a two-year period in which the TV critic used either whole sentences or long phrases in sentences that were taken from other newspapers, magazines and Web sites verbatim without attribution, reports David House.
