NBC News says parts of 11 articles were plagiarized.

NBC News said Monday that they had found cases of plagiarism in 11 articles written by a reporter over the past year.

In a note on its website, the network said an editorial note had been placed on each article and the plagiarized sections had been removed.

“In all cases, the passages were not central to the stories, but instead contained supplementary or background material that did not represent original reporting,” the memo said.

The network did not name the reporter in its memo, but included links to those articles. The author of the 11 articles was Teaganne Finn, who joined NBC News last year as a political reporter and previously worked for Bloomberg as a breaking news reporter.

Ms. Finn no longer works for NBC News. She did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for Bloomberg News declined to comment.

The articles included a report on the party-political struggle over inflation, in which two passages were removed, and coverage of comments from former President Donald J. Trump on the coronavirus vaccine, which contained several unassigned passages, according to the editor’s note.

Questions about Mrs. Finn’s work first arose when one of her articles was edited, leading to a review of previous articles she had written, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal sag. .
