USA Today Removes 23 Articles After Investigation Found Reporter Fabricated Sources

USA Today removed 23 articles from its website after an internal investigation found that one of its reporters fabricated sources.

USA Today’s breaking news reporter Gabriela Miranda fabricated sources and misappropriated quotes for stories, the news outlet confirmed on Thursday. The outlet conducted an internal audit after receiving an “external correction request” on one of its published stories.

USA Today removed 23 articles written by Miranda for not meeting the outlet’s “editorial standards” after the several-week investigation.

Although the links to the now-removed stories are still up, the text of the articles has been replaced with an editor’s note that says, “This story has been removed from our platforms because it does not meet our standards.” – READ MORE
