Hungary: Land of Intellectuals

An investigating committee has cleared Hungary’s president of plagiarizing his 1992 doctoral thesis, despite the inclusion of many pages copied from other sources and a long list of errors.

A five-member committee at Budapest’s Semmelweis University says academics at the then-independent University of Physical Education should have noticed and called attention to similarities between large parts of Schmitt’s thesis analyzing the Olympic Games and works by other authors.

    Wow. 207 pages copied, only 7 original, according to the latest analysis. And let’s not forget the apparently inappropriate employment relationship between the advisee and his advisors when the thesis was “written.” What a mess.
