[Updated] Jonah Lehrer’s Wired.com misdeeds

Charles Seife says his investigation found that Jonah Lehrer “plagiarized others’ work, published inaccurate quotations, printed narrative details that were factually incorrect, and failed to address errors when they were pointed out.”

UPDATE: “Lehrer’s failure to meet WIRED editorial standards leaves us no choice but to sever the relationship,” writes Wired.com editor-in-chief Evan Hansen.
