MG Siegler, on this Ina Fried report for AllThingsD that’s seemingly based on a TechCrunch story but gives no link or credit to TechCrunch:
But here’s the problem. Fried reports it as happening “last
week”, but that’s not true at all. The spin-off actually
happened six weeks ago. I knew this information when I wrote the
story, but I didn’t include it, because I didn’t think it was
particularly relevant. But it has turned out to be a great trap!
What Fried is essentially saying by saying “last week” is that
she read our report from last week and assumed it happened at that
time (a fair assumption, but an incorrect one!). How can one do
such a thing and still get away without citing or linking? Well,
it’s clearly a pattern of jackassery.
