ABC Raids Message Boards to ‘Break’ a Decades-Old Story

Calling the staff of the ABC News blog The Blotter "journalists" is to insult those that actually do journalism.

Let us call them what they are: message board trolling stenographers of liberal orthodoxy and manufactured outrage.

That it appears they additionally stole content from these same message boards and claimed it as their own merely means that in addition to being intellectually lazy, they are likely guilty of content theft as well.

I spoke with a highly-placed media executive yesterday via email, who says that the international news organization he works for would have taken ABC's content theft very seriously.

One can hope that ABC will treat this suspected content theft with seriousness even if they avoid commenting on the shoddy work of Brian Ross and his team.

Or do they even pretend to have standards any more?

Speaking of MSM misconduct:

NY Governor wants to raise taxes $1B

Guess his party affiliation.
This MSM article won't tell you.
