Please support independent bloggers... this is not ethical or cool in any way.

I found another blogger Gregg Re just did this to:

So a few days ago, Libs Of TikTok shared a post from an anonymous doctor from Wake Forest Medical School because she confessed to injuring a patient on purpose because of his political views, and this sounded scary so I did my thing and figured out who she was:

https://hucksters.net/person/kychelle-lourne-del-rosario

https://archive.ph/U6vkw

Almost immediately, a producer Gregg Re from Fox News "liked" my tweet, since it was also going viral... but 5 hours later, that same person posted his own tweet, with the exact same information that I had already published... but with zero credit to me.

https://archive.ph/uT3HZ

A few more hours beyond that, and a right-wing blog The Post Millennial, quoted that Fox News producer in a news article, insinuating he was the one who exposed the doctor.

Assuming it was a mistake, I contacted the TPM journalist Libby Emmons and told her, and she responded "thanks for letting me know!" and then disappeared. After some time, I asked when she would be issuing a correction on her piece or linking back to my blog/tweet? She ignored me.

I then emailed all 4 of the top employees at TPM asking about this, which also went ignored, besides their CEO responding back to insult me.

Deciding to ask the Fox News producer about it instead, assuming we were on good terms since he had already "liked" my tweet, I sent him a DM and email, CC'ing the TPM people, asking him to clarify my blog was his source. Again, this went ignored, until I told the entire lot of them that I would be blogging about their journalistic fraud if they weren't willing to credit my research as their original source.

Suddenly, he responded: he blocked me on Twitter, and then emailed me back threatening to sue me if I proceeded with exposing their content theft. Right now as I type this, he is madly posting on Twitter "new" information about the story (getting ready for a Tucker segment no doubt) with screenshots of emails he sent to Wake Forest demanding ANSWERS!!! about whether this doctor was still treating patients or not... lmao

This might sound like just another goofy part of the internet, but for me (an independent blogger just trying to expose scams in my free time) it was extremely eye-opening that Fox News apparently steals whatever research they want without credit, and then threatens to sue if you speak up.

Now dozens of major media outlets are republishing this story, and all of them credit TPM and this one Fox producer's tweet.

The research exposing "Doctor" Kychelle Del Rosario and Wake Forest medical malpractice was stolen by Fox News from an independent blogger who they threatened to sue if I said anything. This is conservative media in a nutshell these days...

UPDATE: Daily Mail, the #1 news site in the UK, has updated their article to credit me instead of TPM/Fox News.

Anyone who cares about getting credit about a Twittfuck post is delusional.

I really appreciate your kind words, I feel sorry for the other bloggers out there who this happens to and they don't know how to expose it...

Welcome to the internet, learn how to watermark your content. Sorry that you missed your chance at internet glory, and I empathize, I had to learn this the hard way as well. Just in a different profession.

You're not wrong, but we are talking about the top media company in the USA, they know better and they just don't care.

I have dealt with several left-wing journalists over the years, they have never pulled these stunts (not yet, anyway)... it's like Grifters-R-Us on the right, you have to make some "deal" with them if you want any credit, unlike the left

personally I refuse to go down that road

I try to give people a chance to do the right thing, if they screw me then I expose them... idk if that's a good approach or not, but it's the morality I feel okay with

In the early days of the internet, people shared everything from apps, to music and movies. It was a glorious time. We understood that ultimately, it was just zeros and ones. The pendulum has swung so far in the opposite direction that almost everything online costs either your privacy, your money, or both, to enjoy. There’s got to be a greater middle ground we should strive toward.

You don't name the producer in the title but you name the person he produces?

1
yopitt [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

I mean yah, do you know who Gregg Re is cuz I don't think anyone does

anyway all his social media profiles say "Tucker Carlson producer" nice and big so it seems like that's how he is known...

Then title it "Gregg Re, a producer for Tucker Carlson, is stealing..."

As is it's clickbait, using a bigger name to make people interested when that person really has nothing to do with it, something I find more offensive than the issue of credit not being given on the internet.

If he's a television producer he's enough of a public figure. You aren't calling out a mechanic from Kansas.

None of you "conservative bloggers" come up with this stuff on your own. You scour the web looking for fringe shit and everyone else reposts it and talks about it. This entire site is nothing but this.

Is your goal to fight this marxist degeneracy or fake online social media clout. Is this a joke?

Did you read the link? I found the doctor who was injuring patients at Wake Forest because of their political views, nobody else figured out who she was.

I'm proud of that work, sorry you didn't appreciate it

Why would they give you credit for another persons post that you shared?

yopitt [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

Libs Of Tik Tok deserves all the credit for finding the doctor's tweet, I have never said otherwise

But they didn't know who that doctor was... I figured it out less than a few hours later which I was really proud of doing

I don't want any credit besides that I found her name, but Fox News stole my tweet and took the credit and then threatened to sue me if I complained

I hate it too, it's one thing that I have noticed is much more common on the right than on the left... why is conservative media so full of grifters?

This makes me feel politically homeless sometimes...

It's nothing new.

Savage used to complain once in a while that the next day's Rush Limbaugh show used things he talked about the day before.

I'm sure it's as old as time, comedians, politicians, and authors have always stolen ideas from each other.

And it's probably just more evidence of how the internet killed ethics in the news industry (hurrying to publish before verifying anything, just fixing articles later if they need too etc)... but meanwhile these media companies claim to follow the journalism "rules" they leaned at J School, at least for articles

But like in my case, Libby from TPM thinks "who cares about this no-name blogger when I can suck up to a Tucker Carlson producer" ... it's all grifting and career advancement attention-seeking

Twitter esp. has made the content theft so much more prevalent cuz it's the fastest way to grow your followers, and many right-wing publications don't even have social media ethics guidelines for their employees like left-wing does

"Big Tech hates us just do anything for clicks" conservative feedback loop
