CNN Reporter Accuses Sheriff Clarke of Plagiarizing His Masters Thesis

Within days of Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke revealing last Wednesday that he had accepted a position at the Department of Homeland Security, CNN ran a veritable hit piece alleging that the thesis he penned for his master’s degree four years ago contained at least 47 examples of plagiarism.

“In all instances reviewed by CNN’s KFile, Clarke lifts language from sources and credits them with a footnote, but does not indicate with quotation marks that he is taking the words verbatim,” CNN claimed.

Because of these allegations, by a network with a rich history of peddling fake news no less, the Naval Postgraduate School in California where Clarke obtained his master’s degree has reportedly removed the sheriff’s paper from its online archive of theses and dissertations.

“Standard procedure to any formal accusation of plagiarism is to pull the student’s thesis, and perform an investigation into the validity of the claims,” the school’s public affairs officer, Lt. Cdr. Clint Phillips, told CNN in a statement.

In an email to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel sent after the story was published Saturday, Sheriff Clarke blasted the reporters behind the piece, writing, “Only someone with a political agenda would say this is plagiarism.”

Tweets he posted that evening were even more scorching:

Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Fran McLaughlin reportedly expressed the same sentiment, claiming CNN has an agenda and that Clarke had followed the Naval Postgraduate School’s system for writing papers to a T.

These allegations against the sheriff appeared only three days after he told Wisconsin radio host Vicki McKenna that he had been tapped to join DHS as an assistant secretary.

“I’m both honored and humbled to be apt to this position,” he said during the interview. “It’s going to be a steep learning curve for me, serving in the Department of Homeland Security, and I look forward to joining that team.”

DHS has since declined to confirm his appointment, stating only via a tweet that “(s)enior positions are announced when made official by the secretary.”

Hopefully, this hit piece by CNN will not interfere in Sheriff Clarke’s plans to work for the Trump administration.

  1. I think anyone who listens to any CNN reporter AND believes it, is not equipped with enough grey matter to make an intelligent statement. Sheriff David Clark is an upstanding man and not a stupid man. Always some stupid reporter standing by to report trashy news…these are liars and the truth is not in them. Amen

  2. “Standard procedure to any formal accusation of plagiarism is to pull the student’s thesis, and perform an investigation into the validity of the claims,” the school’s public affairs officer, Lt. Cdr. Clint Phillips, told CNN in a statement.
    The results of the investigation should determine what happens next. Far to often guilt is determined by accusation rather than evidence.

  3. Apparently the school published protocols for referencing material which he “followed to a T”. So this snarky snot-nosed little shit makes a big deal that the Sheriff didn’nt use quotation marks but instead relied upon numeric notations.

    It’s time for Mr Snarky Little Shit to get a bitch slap.

  4. God bless Sheriff David Clarke! He should work for President Trump’s administration. We would be blessed to have him.
