Quicklink: Much Ado About Blog Poaching

Remember how hot and bothered I got when I received what essentially amounted to an admission from one of the New York Post’s reporters stating that they do, in fact, use blogs for news leads without crediting them? Mr. Ginsberg called it “amplifying”. I call it bullshit.

It would appear I am not the only one who feels this way. Read it and weep, folks.

  2. No wonder this nudnik couldn’t flush out a comment on the Post’s plagiarism policy–he called the editors. Better he should have called that PR firm they have setting their journalistic ethics. And let’s not fret that we can’t understand this paper’s standards and practices. I can’t even make heads or tails of their headlines (“B’KLYN LOONY RUNES,” “BAG ‘MOSQUE” GAG CHURCH,” etc.) Maybe they’re cryptograms.

    And please keep these semi-coherent emails from Post reporters coming. Very amusing!

  4. If there’s any way to verify IP addresses from the Post, you could just block them from accessing the site from the office. Annoying and petty, but so are they.

Tell me what you're thinking...
