Typical: NY Times/ABC Life Story from This Website, Uncredited


Thanks to Aaron Barnhart’s ticker for pointing the way to this story about the stories.  But here’s yet another story of major news organizations lifting big stories from online bloggers but failing to note their sources.  This time, it looks like ABC and NY Times used Deceiver.com as their unpaid research assistants.

My only quarrel with Deceiver.com is…they link to Livejournal’s ohnotheydidnt, a true internet parasite that DOES rip-off hardworking journalists with abandon.
