The Times Staff Reads the Gazette

11 Nov

by Ken Davidson

 

Mayor McDermott likes to warn people not to get their news from an “online news source” but apparently the staff at The Times does just that.  Once again The Times has picked up on one of our stories without giving us any credit.  Those who follow the Gazette will remember that they reported on the Hammond Police Officer’s house shooting about a week after we did.  They sort of picked up on the Cal Ripken comment story a  week late also.  Never mind that they SPONSORED the event and actually heard the comments.  They didn’t think it was news until we reported it.

Now they are picking up on a story third-hand without providing credit to The Gazette or CNET.  The Times reported today on the LG G2 theft in Gary as if it was their original crack reporting that broke the story.  To make matters worse, they even pilfered the original CNET theme of a possible delay in launch of the phone due to the theft.

    I was just telling someone the other day how you get the news way before the Times and are accurate. Thank you!

    Pride goeth before a fall. I enjoy your news posts, and you do a great job reporting. But this is not a news post. It’s bragging and bashing.

      This is important news. Politicians, especially the bloated, greasy McD type and roly poly head tilting KFW-GUEA type, want to control the news and the Times facilitates their wishes. The Times is a big part of their inbred circle jerk. Anything that points this out is news.

    THIS is exactly why I started following the Gazette. It used to be that the media reported the news – now they report what McDermott wants them to.
