Fake News from Newsweek: "Ivanka Trump Plagiarizes Her Own Speech"

In a nonsensical, fake news Tweet, Newsweek proves it does not understand what plagiarism is.

Plagiarism Definition

By definition, it is not possible to plagiarize your own speech.

Yet, here is the Tweet in all its glory.

I captured an image of the Tweet for posterity in case Newsweek deletes it. Note that over 400 people liked the Tweet.

Of course, some may have liked it simply because it shows unprofessional anti-Trump biased journalism in full blazing glory.

Now let's look at some responses.

Fake News def: False, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting. Calling every mistake "fake news" is "fake news".

Just a mistake, innocent use of the wrong word. Not evidence of an anti-Trump bias. A waste of a post on this geo-politics, economics blog.

Hey, when an idiot, writing for an audience of idiots…. Write something idiotic …

More seriously, what would be a suitable term for an author repeating the same content to a second audience that he has previously written for another in another context; attempting to pass this latest one of as original thought regarding the second audience’s specific concerns? Other than lazy.. :)

The news media have been completely overwhelmed by their partisanship. They simply cannot overcome their own narrow-minded need to be right and preach at all costs. Objectivity, that's only when you're not at "war".
