USA Today removes 23 articles, says reporter fabricated sources

USA Today has unpublished 23 articles written by a journalist at the outlet who the company said fabricated sources and other facts in those reports.

The outlet said it began an audit of the reporter’s work after it received an external correction request. The audit found the reporter, Gabriela Miranda, penned articles in which “some individuals quoted were not affiliated with the organizations claimed and appeared to be fabricated.”

“The existence of other individuals quoted could not be independently verified. In addition, some stories included quotes that should have been credited to others,” the newspaper said in a note to readers on Thursday.

The outlet said it has removed the offending articles from its website and other platforms for “not meeting our editorial standards” and noted that Miranda resigned from USA Today.
