Here’s a screencap of Perez Hilton’s blog dated February 28, 2010:
If Sheepshead Bites is to be believed (and I see no reason why they shouldn’t be) Perez Hilton did a big, BIG no-no. In any case, the time line says it all.
A piece of advice for Mister Perez: if you’re going to quote another blogger the least you can do is give props/linkage to said blogger. What you did is not “sourcing”. It is plagiarism. Plain and simple.
P.S.: Special thanks goes out to Kevin Walsh of Forgotten-NY for bringing this to my attention.
