From imdeiaethics :

The Richmond Times-Dispatch fired freelance dining critic Elliott Shaffner for plagiarism and deleted all of her reviews for the newspaper. The plagiarism, unpublishing and firing was announced in a note to readers from executive editor Paige Mudd. What did Shaffner in was a July 28 review that lifted from Los Angeles Times‘ restaurant critic Jonathan Gold’s review for L.A. Weekly. iMediaEthics has contacted Mudd and Shaffner for more information. -
