Now that Sheriff David Clarke has announced that he will be joining Trump’s team as assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, CNN is trying to attack him in any way they can think of. In their first attempt at an attack, they claimed that Clarke plagiarized sections of his master’s thesis on Homeland Security. But it’s not what you think.
In the paper, he did credit his sources with a footnote, but he didn’t use quotation marks in a few places indicating that the was referencing someone else. It’s not a big deal, not even his professor noticed it until after CNN pointed it out to them. CNN wrote a scathing article about Clarke while explaining the rules of plagiarism.
“According to guidelines on plagiarism posted on the Naval Postgraduate School’s website, “If a passage is quoted verbatim, it must be set off with quotation marks (or, if it is a longer passage, presented as indented text), and followed by a properly formulated citation. The length of the phrase does not matter. If someone else’s words are sufficiently significant to be worth quoting, then accurate quotation followed by a correct citation is essential, even if only a few words are involved,” wrote CNN.
“This @CNN hack @KFILE oppo research MO is to accuse plagiarism. I’m next. Did it to Rand Paul, Monica Crowley et al,” wrote Clarke. “Ample evidence of my previous tweet on @CNN political hack @KFILE. The guy is a sleaze bag. I’m on to him folks,” wrote Clarke with links to this article and this article.
