Rich Cimini Accused of using fake Twitter account to discredit fellow writers

If true, his career should be over.
Not necessarily. Even nonsports journalists have been caught plagiarizing and even making up fiction and after a brief career interruption go right back to well-paid jobs in journalism.
Mike Barnicle of the Boston Globe lifter stuff from George Carlin's book and now he's a regular guest on Joe Scarborough's show. And by no means is he the only one I can recall-and I'm not even in journalism.
Cimini will probably get fired from ESPN if he did it-but he'll probably pop right back up again somewhere else in a year or two.
Personally, I think a journalist who plagiarizes, makes stuff up or does something like what Cimini seems to have done should be read out of the profession and be made to go into a different line of work entirely. But that doesn't seem to happen, unfortunately.
