MSM steals story from blogger without credit
Remember how Dean Singleton was complaining last year that Internet news organizations were stealing the news his papers and the AP were producing? Well, blogger Danny Sullivan shows how a story he broke on Friday (about a Utah woman suing Google for bad map directions) was ripped off without attribution by various media outlets, including AP (which is headed by Singleton) and Singleton's Salt Lake City paper. Seems those who stole the story left some telltale traces that showed they had stolen Sullivan's original work, but they didn't have the courtesy to attribute it to his blog.
