ESPN Plagiarism Claim: Kevin Ding, a columnist at the OC Register, claims an ESPN anchor lifted the first few paragraphs from his column and then read them on air. “Hey, Will Selva of ESPNEWS. Glad you liked my last column so much. Try not to plagiarize it next time. I got back to my hotel room late Tuesday night after the Lakers-Spurs game and turned on ESPNEWS’ ‘Highlight Express’ show. Imagine my shock when anchor Will Selva proceeded to use the first several paragraphs of my column looking forward to the game as his lead-in to the highlights. I mean, word for word.” [Lakers Blog via SBB]
