Politicians called out for copying

BuzzFeed News broke the story that Carson had lifted material from a number of books and online sources for his 2012 book “America the Beautiful.” They revealed that several sections of the book were copied from a variety of online articles, a CBS News article, and a website titled SocialismSucks.net. “I attempted to appropriately cite and acknowledge all sources in America the Beautiful, but inadvertently missed some. I apologize, and I am working with my editors to rectify the situation,” Carson said in a statement his representative, Armstrong Williams, provided to CNN.
