A fellow adviser posted this, and I thought I’d share. This is serious business.

Accuracy and truth are the fundamentals of what we do, whether it’s at the Wall Street Journal or in our newsroom each day at The Shorthorn. Please comment, share and, mostly, remember that fabrication and plagiarism are the easy ticket out of journalism.
