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...
^^ How to identify Fox News employees trolling The Donald for scoops
Thank you I will check it out, if your team wants to tell me more I would certainly be willing to help you expose the content theft on my blog.
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'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
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
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
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...
UPDATE: Daily Mail, the #1 news site in the UK, has updated their article to credit me instead of TPM/Fox News.
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...
Not surprising at all
