AUDIO – Adam Hill pushes back on plagiarism charges lobbed at fellow LVRJ sportswriter

Tuesday was a trying day for the Las Vegas Review-Journal sports staff

Jesse Granger, a writer from The Athletic, claimed that an unnamed LVRJ writer copied his Tuesday story.

(@JesseGranger_) tweeted at 9:17 AM on Tue, Sep 10, 2019:
I love waking up every morning, picking up the local newspaper, and reading an attempt at a replica of my exact story with all the quotes from my interviews.
All I can say, is I promise the original is better.

For a few hours, fellow LVRJ writer Ed Graney and Granger discussed/debated the issue on Twitter.

Granger eventually apologized via Twitter around 4.p.m.

Cofield and Company’s Adam Hill wasn’t exactly satisfied with the short apology on social media.
