It's hardly as bad as it seems; the first was a one off where he cited in a speech a british member of parliament Neil Kinnock's speech, forgetting that day to note Neil, whereas Joe had indeed credited Neil in six previous incidences of the very speech.
The second was as a freshman in college, claiming he was unfamiliar with the rules for citing sources, quelle surprise, happens regularly to freshman college students. Sophomores too.
May 1989: Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. was cleared of allegations that he committed plagiarism in law school by a panel under the authority of the Delaware Supreme Court ... The alleged law school plagiarism involved an essay Mr. Biden wrote in 1965 for an introductory class on legal methodology. 'A Personal Vindication'
A third example of plagiarism came to mind, same blog link above: What does Melania Trump's plagiarism tell us? .. Melania Trump got up last night to further her husband's success, and took her cue from Michelle Obama eight years ago. Her speech contained phrases which can only have been copied from the First Lady's earlier address, and so have been labelled as plagiarism.
This is a damning accusation and has prompted recollections of the last big plagiarism scandal to rock a US election, when Joseph Biden re-used Neil Kinnock's 'Thousand Generations' speech, was promptly labelled a plagiarist, and was forced to withdraw from the campaign
Shine some Light on it!
Great Find, highplainsdem Thank you!KR!!
like a Ringing Endorsement to me! You already know he'll make a brilliant president if elected.. if he first wins the Nom.
Same thing with these POC in South Carolina!
Biden is a Uniter. If he's not winning he will support wholeheartedly whomever the winner is.
That's just one reason I support Joe Biden. Country and Planet over ego
watched and read any m$$$media since November 2002.. but I know from DU that it's only exponentially worse now.
I looked up Dowd's twitter page to see who he is..
fair and square.
I wish we would have never heard her "voice" lying about Hillary.. saying she "..was more dangerous than trump"
