The Inquirer’s editor, Madeline Bennett, defended the UK “computer hardware” news site from plagiarism charges in a recent blogpost. Bennett explained that this Inquirer article about chip designer AMD leaving computer consortium BAPco, has been accused of plagiarism, but claimed that no one has reached out to her or the Inquirer for comment regarding the charges.
Bennett stated the information in that article came from “an alert sent to us by AMD or told to our reporter by AMD’s Jan Guetter during a phone interview, including the references to Nvidia and Via.”
Technology news site SemiAccurate.com claimed that The Inquirer “stole our information and wrote up their piece, giving no credit, and only linking Nigel’s blog. This is flat out and unabashed plagiarism, something that would end any academic career, and should end any professional career. This shows you how professional The Inquirer has become.”
StinkyJournalism is writing to The Inquirer and SemiAccurate.com for comment and will update with any response.
