Daily Beast Reporter Resigns After Blatantly Plagiarizing Article

Lizzie Crocker, a reporter for The Daily Beast, has resigned after getting caught blatantly plagiarizing an article from The Weekly Standard.

Crocker, a veteran reporter for the outlet, appears to have copied and pasted multiple paragraphs from Alice Lloyd’s article for the Standard. Both articles focused on Kate Roiphe, a writer who stirred controversy by reportedly drafting a piece naming the author of the “Shitty Men In Media” list of male journalists rumored to have engaged in sexual misconduct.
