This isn't the first time. Usually I only notice others opinions or reasearched information verbatim and my thoughts always go to the author needing
to understand the value of the paraphrase. Or at the very least the importance of citation.
I'm irritated for you. How hard is it to type that information was brought to the writers attention by a person at a place?
I contacted them concerning this. Having worked in the news industry for a few years, I know that credibility is a big deal, as is citing sources.
That site needs to know that one of their writers may be lacking originality and not citing his sources.
We'll see if anything comes of it...it's an honesty thing, for me. I let them know I wasn't the author of the post, so they won't think it's
you--well, they shouldn't think the email came from you.
