For those who have been following my post on plagiarism in Philippine Star, I got a copy of Mayenne Carmona’s apology that appeared in her column last weekend. Big thanks to Bette, one of the readers of this blog, for sending these to my email this afternoon.
Here’s the apology verbatim:
I would like to apologize to my readers for my article last week, “Whom Not to Marry”. The wisdom of Fr. Pat Connor was not from a personal interview I had with him. In as much as I put his teachings in quotations, it was an oversight on my part not to have written that the source of his quotations and other parts of my article were from the column of Maureen Dowd, July 6, in The New York Times. — Mayenne Carmona
Was that indicative plagiarism?
