Jill Abramson defends new book amid plagiarism allegations

But later that night, she wrote on Twitter that she would be reviewing the "passages in question".

In a statement to the Daily Beast, publisher Simon & Schuster said Abramson's book was "exhaustively researched and meticulously sourced", adding that, if necessary, it would work with the author to make revisions. "Masters of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts" charts the changes that have occurred in journalistic standards and media technology in the 21st century through the lenses of four news organizations - Vice News, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and BuzzFeed.

A Twitter thread posted Wednesday by Vice correspondent Michael C. Moynihan listed several examples of passages in Abramson's book that closely resembled the work of others.

Abramson: "I take seriously the issues raised and will review the passages in question".

Abramson is the former executive editor of The New York Times, and was sacked from her post in 2014.

The reporter went on to say that "all three chapters on Vice were clotted with mistakes".

The author's recently released literary offering, 'Merchants of Truth, ' has been billed as "the definitive in-the-room account of the revolution that has swept the news industry". "Imagine plagiarizing for a book on ethics - riddled with factual errors - and then calling it 'Merchants of Truth.' Hats off to you ΓåòJillAbramson!" "I wouldn't want even a misplaced comma so I will promptly fix these footnotes and quotations as I have corrected other material that Vice contested", Abramson told the AP Thursday.

While it's true that footnotes were provided for some of the offending passages, many have argued that such extensive borrowing - in some cases excerpts from other sources were retooled nearly verbatim - would require Abramson to credit sources directly in her text.

The controversy could become a bit of a black eye for Abramson's current employer, Harvard University, which hired the former Times editor to teach creative writing. She ran the paper of record for years and was the first woman to hold the job of executive editor in the Times' 160-year existence. One topic she focused a great deal on was Vice Media.

Abramson appears to be dodging any major responsibilities, however, promising that changes will be made in order to make her book "flawless". Abramson also says had ample time to review the sections of the book about it before publication.

"In several of these cases, the language is too close for comfort, and should have been specifically cited in the footnotes correctly", Abramson told NPR.

"The problem here is that though I did cite these publications and try to credit everybody perfectly, I fell short", she admits. "Or put in quotations in the book".
