BuzzFeed News has found that the following articles do not meet our editorial standards, as laid out in our standards and ethics guidelines. As a result, the articles have been updated to more clearly attribute phrases and sentence construction to material previously published by other news organizations. In our commitment to transparency, we have also added an editorโ€™s note to the top of each story indicating the original source.

It is BuzzFeed Newsโ€™ policy that nothing may be copied, pasted, and passed off as oneโ€™s own work, and that all quotes should be attributed. We regret that in these instances those standards were not met.

We are continuing to look into the matter and will maintain this list with any other relevant articles that we find.

BuzzFeed News apologizes for these lapses, both to you, the reader, and to the authors of the original work and their news outlets.
