ESPN anchor suspended for plagiarism of Orange County Register writer

"An ESPNEWS anchor has been suspended for an unknown period for lifting portions of a newspaper column and using them in a script without attributing where the passage originated," Milton Kent writes, adding, "Will Selva, an anchor at ESPN for three years, issued an apology Wednesday for taking all but a few words from the lead of a column written by Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register, previewing Tuesday's game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs. 'I made a horrible mistake and I'm deeply sorry. I did not live up to my high standards or ESPN's' Selva said in a statement.''
