A lot of big media sites steal from blogs regularly these days. But for that site to be NPR and it’s writer to defend her action is heinous. Six months after Rich Juziak of fourfour conceptualized and created the fantastic supercut video “No Signal“, Beth Accomando from NPR decided to write about it as if she came up with the idea… This is plagiarism, right?
On top of it being appalling plagiarism, it’s shitty journalism. A simple Googling of the video title reveals that the story was covered, and credited, by tons of major media sites from Buzzfeed to New York Magazine when published in Sept 2009 by fourfour.
