Scewed without a kiss

Providing attribution is critical in the media. For online news, providing links is also standard. How closely a website follows these basic tents is the difference between a reputable organization and one that is less so.

When Sailing Anarchy is critical of other news sites that ‘cut and paste’, yet when they do the exact same thing...without proper attribution...frequently... an occasional bullshit needs to be called.

Today they posted what appeared to be an original report that Mike Sanderson wrote about sailing with Hap Fauth and the Bella Mente team during their winning Transpac race. Except Mike wrote the report for his website, and SA lifted the whole thing without any link to direct online traffic back to his website.

Screwed without a kiss.
