Times-Dispatch fires photographer for visual plagiarism





The photographer responsible for the Times-Dispatch business section cover that resembled a Dec. 2004 Richmond Style Weekly cover has been fired. "We learned that the photographer had seen the Style photo while at the candy company, and was told of the similarity, but submitted the picture anyway as original work," writes managing editor Louise Seals. "That is visual plagiarism and that is why we have dismissed the photographer."
