Reuters will investigate CNN plagiarist's work

Reuters was "not aware of any concerns raised" about Marie-Louise Gumuchian's work when she was a reporter there, Head of Corporate Affairs David Crundwell tells Poynter in an email. "However in light of press reports we are reviewing her stories."



CNN said Friday it had dismissed Gumuchian, a news editor in London, after finding plagiarism in more than 50 of her stories. A CNN source told Poynter she had primarily lifted copy from Reuters. "She worked for us for about six months, so if we found that many in six months I can’t imagine the job Reuters has now," the source told Craig Silverman.
