Security Briefs


After an investigation, The Rider News has determined that three
pieces written by a single author, published in print and online,
contained numerous fabricated sources, quotes and examples of
plagiarism. The author was not a member of The Rider News and
has never taken journalism classes at Rider, where the curriculum
enforces that fabrication and plagiarism are unacceptable in the
profession. The Rider News has decided that in the future, it will
not publish material from this writer and has taken down the
author’s past work from its website for failing to meet basic
journalism standards. The Rider News deeply regrets this situation
and will continue to strive to uphold professional standards, as
well as be an honest and reliable source of information to the
university community.
