Plagiarism Case: Jayson Blair

  1. 1. THE JAYSON BLAIR PLAGIARISM CASE BY JUSTIN MARTIN, MICELA SIMPLICIANO-MEDINA, CHRISTIAN DAVIS, AND MARK MIJARES
  2. 2. WHONAME: JAYSON BLAIROCCUPATION: EX-NY TIMESREPORTERDOB: 1976 IN VIRGINIAETHNICITY: AFRICAN-AMERICANHAIR COLOR: BLACKEYE COLOR: DARK BROWN
  3. 3. WHATCASE: JAYSON BLAIR WAS CHARGED IN THE ACT OF PLAGIARISM AND FRAUDULENCE. THERE WERE MANY ARTICLES FOUND IN HIS WRITING OVER A FOUR YEAR SPAN THAT INCLUDED MANY PIECES OF LYING, FRAUDULENCE AND PLAGIARISM. TO BE MORE SPECIFIC, THEY FOUND MORE THAN 600 ARTICLES OR WRITINGS CREATED BY HIM FILLED WITH FALSE INFORMATION.
  4. 4. WHEREARTICLES RANGING FROM FAMILIES OF SOLDIERS IN IRAQ OR HOMES OF PEOPLE RANGING FROM WEST VIRGINIA, TEXAS, A SOLDIERS FUNERAL IN OHIO, AND MANY OTHER PLACES. HE RECREATED THESE STORIES WITHOUT EXACTLY BEING IN THESE AREAS.
  5. 5. WHYHE WAS ASKED IN AN INTERVIEW WHY HE PLAGIARIZED AND LIED ABOUT HIS STORIES WHILE HE WAS A WORKER FOR ONE OF THE GREATEST NEWSPAPERS. HE REPLIED TO THE INTERVIEWER THAT IT WASNT WHAT HE INTENDED TO DO AND IT WASNT WHAT HE WANTED (SPEAKING OF MAKING THIS MOMENT AN EMBARRASSING CHAPTER FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES)
  6. 6. WHENON MAY 1, 2003, JAYSON BLAIR RESIGNED FROM WORK AT THE NEW YORK TIMES AFTER BEING CHARGED WITH PLAGIARISM FOR WRITING A STORY ABOUT A FAMILY OF AN AMERICAN SOLDIER IN IRAQ. INVESTIGATORS LOOKING INTO THE CASE OF JAYSON BLAIR FOUND OUT THAT AT LEAST 36 FAKE OR PLAGIARIZED STORIES BETWEEN OCTOBER 2002 AND APRIL 2003.
  7. 7. HOWJAYSON BLAIR RESIGNED FROM THE NY TIMES WHEN HE WAS QUESTIONED WHETHER HIS STORIES/ARTICLES WERE TRUE OR IF THEY WERE PLAGIARIZED AND FABRICATED. HE ADMITTED ON AN INTERVIEW THAT WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG, BUT NEVER GAVE A CLEAR EXPLANATION OF WHY HE DID IT. HE ALSO RELEASED A BOOK CALLED "BURNING DOWN MY MASTERS HOUSE" EXPLAINING THAT HE KNOWS WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG AND IN THE BOOK IT EXPLAINS HIS SIDE OF THE STORY AND WHAT LED HIM TO DO THESE THINGS AND BEING ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH IT.
  8. 8. CONSEQUENCESJAYSON BLAIR DID NOT RECEIVE ANY PUNISHMENT IN THE WAY OF THE DOLLAR BILL. HOWEVER, HE LOST SOMETHING WHICH SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE IS GREATER THAN MONEY. THAT MY FELLOW VIEWERS, IS WHAT WE CALL CREDIBILITY OR TRUST. SEE, HE WROTE SO MANY LIES AND FALSE INFORMATION THAT NO ONE KNOWS WHAT TO BELIEVE FROM HIM, SUCH AS IF HE IS TRULY REMORSEFUL ACCORDING TO HIS BOOK. CREDIBILITY TAKES A LONGER TIME TO GAIN BACK THEN MONEY, YOU CANT JUST WORK FOR IT LIKE MONEY. ONE MUST ACTUALLY DESERVE IT OVER TIME OF PROVING ONES SELF.
  9. 9. THE ENDTHIS CONCLUDES OUR POWERPOINT
