Ploni, a frequent email correspondent who tipped me to Rabbi Gershon Tannenbaum's gross plagiarism in this week's Jewish Press, noticed this morning that Rabbi Tannenbaum's column is missing from the Jewish Press website. It was still up Sunday.
Here is the blank web page in pdf. Note the url at the top right of the screen:
Here is the Jewish Press navigation page listing its columns. Normally, Rabbi Tannenbaum's column would be listed here, but it is not:
The original text and a PDF of that web page along with the text and a PDF of the source Rabbi Tannenbaum stole from in my original post.
So far, Jewish Press editor Jason Maoz has still not responded to my email or phone call regarding Rabbi Tannenbaum's plagiarism.
Ploni wonders if the Jewish Press will print a retraction? Will Rabbi Tannenbaum be suspended or fired? What, if any, consequences are there for a Jewish Press columnist who (grossly) plagiarizes?
