Publisher Pulls Book by Hillary Clinton’s Pastor, Citing Plagiarism

CNN’s Daniel Burke reports, “The publisher of a book by Hillary Clinton’s longtime pastor is discontinuing sales of the book and destroying remaining copies, saying that it found examples of plagiarism beyond those reported by CNN last month.” “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton” is based on spiritual emails written from the Rev. Bill Shillady to Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. On Tuesday, Shillady said, “I was wrong and there is no excuse for it. I apologize to those whose work I mistakenly did not attribute. I apologize to those I have disappointed, including Secretary Hillary Clinton, Abingdon Press, and all the writers and others who have helped me publish and promote this book.”
