Rebel Media Admits To Plagiarism By Former Correspondent
But it's still not clear what spurred Jack Posobiec's sudden departure after less than two months

The Rebel has admitted that its former Washington correspondent, Jack Posobiec, plagiarized the work of an extreme-right American activist in one of his videos while still with the Canadian-based alt-right media outlet.

Early on the morning of June 19, freelance journalist Jason Kessler — who has been profiled by the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center as a white supremacist and an extremist, respectively —  tweeted, “Several instances of Jack Posobiec making a buck off my content.” The tweet was accompanied with three links to sections of a video Kessler made in the middle of March juxtaposed with three nearly identical clips from a Rebel video Posobiec published a month later.
