Sana Bucha facing plagiarism allegations Sana Bucha, the anchor of Geo TV, has landed in trouble and facing serious question about her professional ethics and honesty after the appearance of her latest article published in The News on Sunday (dated: July 17, 2011).
An email circulated on PressPakistan, a journalist networking forum informs. Geo TV anchor's article has been plagiarized--in certain cases word to word--from an article that appeared in The Economist on July 14, 2011. "Even some of the words of the headlines of both the articles are same.
In journalism, and generally, plagiarism is considered a serious professional and ethical crime and there are examples in professional organizations, both national and international, punitive action were taken against them." The source expressed.
Let's see how Pakistan's biggest channel acts against its own employee/plagiarist when it questions the integrity and professionalism of everyone else in the country. When ‘incredibles’ sulk! Sana Bucha
