Unoriginal Reporting

If it comes up in conversation, I’m not adverse to sharing the little known nugget that CNN gets much of its rundown by ripping off other news outlets.

Case in point, this NYT article ran in Sunday’s paper. I know because I posted it over at Americablog yesterday with attribution.

Monday morning, CNN books Perez Hilton to talk about the pressures of professional blogging. Like a good blogger, Perez brings up the NYT article – well aware of why he’s been tapped to talk. Kiran’s script – however – makes no mention.

Way to take someone else’s work and make it your own. It’s not like this article on blogging was news. It was clearly an enterprise piece, and all CNN did was read and regurgitate in video form.
