This article presents the author's experience of plagiarism while working with a journalism class at the University of Southern California for a reporting project called News21. The goal of the class is to report original and relevant stories that will be published or broadcast on professional news media outlets, such as the Internet, television, newspapers, and radio. One story of a reporter from a class was shown up under a different headline on an Internet site named Buzzle, without giving credits to the original reporter.
