My buddy Andrew Fine (yes, he's a realtor, but a helpful one) posted a story on his blog on March 1st about a Chuck E. Cheese in Harlem having a sign at the front door prohibiting gang attire.
The NY Post ran a story today about the same thing without crediting Andrew or his blog as a source and acted as though they got the scoop.
This is nothing new, folks.
The old guard feels very threatened by the popularity of blogs.
They've done the same thing to Miss Heather many times.
Apparently, they don't think it's either appropriate or necessary to give credit where credit is due. Now if bloggers saw something in the Post and then repeatedly reported the Post's exclusives as if they discovered them, I'm sure there would be a scathing editorial in the Post or perhaps a Peyser piece about how wrong this is.
You'd think a billionaire like Rupert Murdoch would be able to employ enough talented people to get enough original material to fill his rag on a daily basis.
Instead they have employed Queens Tribune alumni to recycle bloggers' stories.
