'View' co-host Hasselbeck accused of plagiarism

'View' co-host Hasselbeck accused of plagiarism

1 hr 10 mins ago

BOSTON – The author of a health book has sued Elisabeth Hasselbeck, accusing the co-host of ABC's "The View" of plagiarism.


The lawsuit, filed Monday in federal court in Massachusetts, alleges that Hasselbeck lifted "word for word" content from a book written by Susan Hassett, a self-published author on Cape Cod.


Hasselbeck's book, "The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide," has appeared in the past month on several best-seller lists.


Hassett said in the lawsuit that she sent Hasselbeck a personal note and copy of her "Living With Celiac Disease" book as a courtesy after the television celebrity disclosed she had the illness last year.


Celiac disease is a digestive disorder associated with people who cannot digest gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.


Hassett said Hasselbeck's book "slavishly reproduces" lists and passages from her own work and includes inaccuracies about celiac disease that can be "misleading and dangerous" for people with the illness.


A lawyer for Hassett declined to comment Tuesday. A phone message left for Hasselbeck's agent was not immediately returned.


The lawsuit seeks to block the sale of Hasselbeck's book and asks that copies of it be withdrawn from distributors and stores.

Did you forget that we're talking about Elizabeth Hasselback?

It's hard to think that she has an original bone in her body.

I doubt she really wrote the book anyway - she had some people piece it together then put her name on it to "sell" it.
So whatever those people did, she has No Clue.

A right wing-wannabe loonie toon like Hasselbeck has a book? And people would be surprised she'd plagiarize?

anyone with brains would read the book before you allow your name on it.
