Paying to Cheat

December 2, 2008

During November sweeps week, KXMB did a two-part story on online paper mills, which produce papers on demand for college students who can afford to pay for their plagiarism. I was interviewed, along with my colleague Becki Chalmers. I think we’re only in the second part, but the set-up is in the first part. It’s pretty interesting stuff, and it served as a nice cautionary tale to my composition students.

KXMB doesn’t have them up online any more, but here’s a link to reporter Jason Torreano’s blog. Here’s part one:
