Somebody didn’t pay attention in journalism class.  And he/she decided it was okay to lift a newspaper story and post it on his/her station’s website.  No, that’s not okay.  Yes, there are consequences.  Even after publication, a journalist’s work belongs to the journalist or the organization for which he/she works.  Assuming otherwise can cost you your credibility or maybe even your job.  Stories are a journalist’s work product…

Here’s another instance of a journalist lifting another journalist’s work.  How about doing original work folks?  That’s what we get paid for.
