It is a widespread belief that people who seek success in life will never limit themselves to one format, and once you have tasted success, you long for it all the more. Monica Crowley, an American political commentator, author, and radio personality, is a typical example of a woman who has drunk from the river of success and is still thirsting for more. Despite all the negativity of people who would like to see her ambition paralyzed, she has achieved tremendous success in every facet of her profession.
Monica Crowley was born on September 19, 1968, at the Fort Huachuca army base outside Sierra Vista, Arizona, and grew up in Warren Township, New Jersey, United States of America. Monica has American citizenship while her ethnicity is white. The renowned radio station has a sister named Jocelyn Crowley.
Since her early years, Monica has always cultivated an interest in politics, which is why she chose Political Science as her first degree, which she earned at Colgate University. After graduating from Colgate University, she went to Columbia University, where she earned a master’s degree and a doctorate in international relations in 2000.
By the time Monica was in college, she was already writing formal letters to President Richard Nixon. She was given the opportunity to work with Nixon on his last two books as an assistant and advisor to the editorial staff. She has worked as a columnist for the Baltimore Sun, Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, and Washington Times, and she also developed her own show, The Monica Crowley Show. In the mid-1990s, she worked for National Public Radio in their Morning Edition as a radio jockey cum commentator. Monica has worked with other world-famous stations such as MSNBC and Fox News Channel. She also worked as a guest presenter on The O’Reilly Factor and was very active in the 2016 elections that brought Donald Trump to power.
Issues with Plagiarism
Monica has been accused of plagiarism on several occasions. In 1999, it became known that a column that the reporter/transmitter had written about Richard Nixon for the Wall Street Journal bore outstanding similarities to an article written by Paul Johnson eleven years ago. When Monica was asked by the New York Times for a comment, she replied that she would not use material from another author’s work and would not quote it.
On January 7, 2017, she was again accused of plagiarism, but this time by CNN. The station published a report on her 2012 book What the (Bleep) Happened? entitled What the (Bleep) Happened? and documented numerous cases of plagiarism. The controversial book was x-rayed and contained over 50 cases of reproductions from previously published sources without any attribution. The copies of published works contained elements from Wikipedia. Monica was supported by the Donald Trump transition team, which dismissed the plagiarism report as a politically motivated attack,
On 9 January 2017, just two days later, Monica’s 2000 dissertation on international relations, which she had obtained at Columbia University, was brought into the limelight by Politico, who reported that it contained numerous cases of plagiarism. One day later, the editor of the book What the (Bleep) Happened? announced that the book would no longer be available in stores, as it had reached the end of its natural sales cycle, and to allow the author to research and review the material.
Monica withdrew from the race for the position of Senior Director of Strategic Communications at the National Security Council in the Trump Administration on January 16, 2017. According to her, she decided to give up the position to pursue other opportunities in New York. That same day, the Washington Times, where she worked as an online opinion editor, announced that all of Monica’s work with them would be properly investigated for possible cases of plagiarism.
Monica bared her soul to Fox News anchor Sean Hannity when she told him that all accusations against her were unfounded and nothing more than a despicable political contract killing that she believed had been exposed. Monica’s claim of innocence was refuted by Andrew Kaczynski, the first CNN reporter to bring her plagiarism case to the public. Andrew Kaczynski described Monica’s assertion of innocence as a false assertion that to this day no one has demanded a refutation of her reporting or pointed out a single error.
Family – Husband, Sister
The veteran reporter/writer is still visibly single, although she has been in a relationship with her boyfriend Bill Siegel for a long time. Bill Siegel, who is a venture capitalist, and Monica have not yet decided whether or not to tie the wedding knot. The renowned writer is the kind of woman who is in love with her profession and believes that her profession deserves nothing less than her total dedication, and this has helped her reach the peak of her career. Monica is always up to her neck in work and does not have much time to maintain a relationship, and it is believed that this is the reason for her single status.
Monica is a sister of Dr. Jocelyn Crowley. Jocelyn works as a professor at Rutgers University and was married to Alan Colmes, the late liberal political commentator.
