Exemplify

igˈzemplifai]
♦ verb
to be an example of; to show by means of an example: His originality as a composer is exemplified by the following group of songs.

he exemplifies the virtues of the working class
او الگویی از فضایل طبقه کارگر است.


When the verb "exemplify" is used in the active form, the example, the single case, is the subject, and the general category is the direct object. When it is used in the passive form, the general case is the subject, and the example is the object of the preposition "by." In this sentence, "The declining standards ...." form the the general case, not the specific example, so we need the passive form, "is exemplified ..." with the specific example, "Bedford's disregard for facts," in the "by" prepositional phrase.
