GlennLog: Defending My Scoop:*
“It’s a well-established practice as a journalist that if you find out about a story from another publication, not a source or your own research, you credit that source. If you don’t know that another publication broke the news, you’re off the hook, too, generally. But don’t go taking my scoop away.”*
Sadly, it’s an equally well-established practice for national newspapers to happily reprint stories from the specialist business press without credit. This isn’t just a blogging or web issue.
