Media doctor admits to plagiarism

Psychiatrist and broadcaster Dr Raj Persaud has admitted plagiarising material for a book and articles published under his name.

Dr Persaud, who practises in south London, is appearing before a General Medical Council hearing in Manchester.

The former Radio 4 presenter admitted plagiarising four articles for his 2003 book From the Edge Of The Couch.

But he denied that his actions were dishonest and were liable to bring his profession into disrepute.

Dr Persaud also admitted passing off other researchers' work as his own in articles published in journals and national newspapers...

Sounds as if he's trying to argue that black is white!
