New York Post Ripping Headlines Again

Posted on: January 27th, 2010 at 10:10 am by

The New York Post is at it again, ripping its headlines directly from the blogosphere.  In a story posted here back in December (with some help from Gawker, in fact), we reported that Anderson Cooper had recently purchased the old Fire Patrol House Number 2 situated at 84 West Third Street.  At the time, numerous commenters confirmed that the CNN anchor was indeed planning to move in.

Enter the Post with all its tabloid clout and poor track record with the blogosphere.  The rag is now taking the Anderson Cooper story and pawning it off as their own.  The issue here, as before, is that of crediting the source.  Or, in this case, not.

So, we put it to you, Tom Topousis.  Stop hiding behind the veneer of News Corp., and reveal your sources for this article.
