UPDATED: Fox News Corrects False Report On Elizabeth Warren's Book

Blog ››› ››› TODD GREGORY

In a National Review blog post, Katrina Trinko falsely accused Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren of plagiarism. She alleged that Warren lifted passages for her 2005 book All Your Worth, which she co-wrote with her daughter Amelia Warren Tyagi, from another book:

Trinko has since deleted that blog post and published a correction:

I took down my earlier post on Elizabeth Warren plagiarizing from the book Getting On the Money Track. On Amazon.com, the Warren book All Your Worth is listed as having been published January 9, 2006. As it turns out, that is the paperback publication date; the hardback book was published in March 2005. As such, it appears that Getting on the Money Track (published in October 2005) plagiarized from All Your Worth, not the other way around.

I apologize for the error.

On Fox News' flagship news program, Special Report, guest host Shannon Bream repeated National Review's false report:

Will Special Report issue a correction on Monday?

UPDATE: Inexplicably, Breitbart.com put up a post echoing the false accusation of plagiarism against Warren -- more than an hour after Trinko had a pulled down her post and issued a correction, which the Breitbart post itself links to:

UPDATE 2: Breitbart has corrected its post, replacing the original content with an editor's note and the text of Trinko's correction:

UPDATE 3: Fox News' Bret Baier addressed the report by his own show from last Friday that accused Elizabeth Warren of plagiarism. Baier stated that the National Review author that originally made the accusation "has since apologized, saying she confused the publications dates, and so Warren was actually the victim of plagiarism and not the other way around."
