Hola senors moderatum

In the entertainment section of today's Daily Record (Scottish tabloid newspaper) there is a small section on the forthcoming Foos album in which Chris's most recent post is quoted pretty much word for word, with no comment that it was taken from this site.

I know stuff like this has popped up before, but i don't remember the policy on publishing info from here.

Is it legit, or frowned upon.....i suppose by Chris posting it here, it's become common knowledge so is now fair game, but lazy journalism disappoints me.

edit note: bad spelling also disssaaapoynts me.

Thumbs down

If they haven't mentioned where they got it from then that's bad journalism and technically plagerism.

Mind you, what do you expect from a paper like the Daily Record.

There is only so much we can do. But as a professional journalist, their ethics should tell them that its a no-no.

Well they're not professional journalists.....they're a pair of try-hard trendy slags who seek out semi-famous folk to have their picture taken with them.

There you have it. </font>[/quote]rte.ie also quoted it. This is the state TV company (like the BBC). Therefore, the Irish government is stealing from the Foo Fighters. Shocking stuff.
