comment What purpose does it serve to obscure the title of a TV show?
It is not a literary device; it is an artifact of the electronic version you're reading. It is likely a poorly OCR'ed scanned version. The original version of the books uses the original MAS*H, available to see at the Amazon preview on page 18, here: amazon.com/Perks-Being-Wallflower-Stephen-Chbosky/dp/0671027344/….

comment How do I determine if a paper has been plagiarized?
@Standback I vote for "on topic". A proper answer could provide advice on avoiding "accidental" or otherwise unintentional or misconceived plagiarism (improperly citing a source or using a phrase that appears in another written work. And as a professor (if the OP is indeed a professor), one of his jobs is critiquing the writings of others, and part of that critique is ensuring the proper use of citations and ensuring that all uncited written work is original content.

comment Citing the same source several times
In MLA, my understanding is that you cite the name and abbreviated title ... [Microsoft blah blah blah blah blah ("2010 paper name"). In addition, Microsoft more blah blah blah ("2010 other paper name").] OR [Blah blah blah blah blah (Microsoft, "2010 paper name"). In addition, more blah blah blah (Microsoft, "2010 other paper name").]
