Plagiarism In The NY Times What deception Occurred? In 2003, one of the reporters of San Antonio newspaper was surprised to witness the similarity depicted in one of the stories that was published in the New York Times. As a matter of fact the story in New York Times was similar to a story that she wrote herself in her newspaper, a few days ago. The New York Times deceived the public by presenting others’ investigative reports as their own. What evidence indicates deception occurred?A thorough investigation into the matter revealed that a reporter of New York Times, named Jayson Blair had been involved in repeated cases of plagiarism. He had been copying and using the reports and contents of other newspapers to develop his own reports, which of course lacked sufficient backing in the form of investigative content. Evidence supporting it being deceptionThe New York Times itself published an investigative report, which contained the details of almost all such frauds that were carried out by Jayson Blair during his tenure at the New York Times. This report confirmed that many of the stories that New York Times published earlier were not original and people were deceived into believing that they are being reported by New York Times. Book EntryWhat deception Occurred?In the book The Brothers Karamazov, there is a character of a child named Ilyusha. The character is perhaps an attempt of the writer to portray before the readers the misery and suffering that one goes through prior to death. The relatives are informed by Ilyusha’s doctors that the child is going to die within a few days. The relatives instead of informing Ilyusha about the reality tend to hide the fact from him and in doing so tell him that he will get better with the passage of time. Hence the reality is twisted to yield faulty perception in the mind of the child – a deception. What evidence indicates deception occurred?Evidence to support that deception occurred can be seen in the form of understanding that the child develops. The relatives are successful since they manage to alter the child’s perception regarding his illness. Hence, he believes that his illness is about to go away and he will get well shortly. Evidence supporting it being deceptionThe ultimate outcome of the child’s health clearly depicts that the reality was different from what the child was expecting, due to faulty perception that was based on a deception that was instilled into his mind by his relatives. The child dies in the story. ReferencesDostoevsky, Fyodor. The Brothers Karamazov.Planet PDF – The PDF User Community – Debenu.Planet PDF,1990.Web. 30Aug.2015. .Rieder, Rem.
