AOL’s New Rochelle Patch Denies Plagiarism Accusation

While this item may pale in comparison to the “other” AOL news of the day, it still merits watching: AOL’s Patch hyperlocal news site for New Rochelle, N.Y., defended itself against a plagiarism claim by Talk of the Sound managing editor Robert Cox, reports Ryan Derousseau of sister blog MediaJobsDaily.

The allegations involved the use of three mug shots of suspects from the New Rochelle Police Department.
