No, Virginia it isnít Fox News Viewers who are misinformed
Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 12/29/10 | Alaphiah

Posted on 12/29/2010 9:07:58 AM PST by Alaphiah123

It isn’t Fox News Viewers who are misinformed, its anti-Fox News advocates who attempt the vilify the truth in order that the radical Left wing socialist agenda of the Democrat Party can continue in relative ignorance.

Liberals recently used a fraudulent University of Maryland study to continue their attacks against what they perceive as Conservative ideas and values. (see 21:10 video)

Stick to your local news if you want to get the news. Watch network news if you need other peoples opinions concerning the news.

Sadly, I live close to San Francisco, so my local news is also heavily spiked with leftist propaganda...

But Alaphiah IS the author of the BLOG, what appears right BEFORE the date. Sure, there’s an imbedded video within the body of the blog but your only valid complaint MIGHT be that the video is not properly credited via footnote. But most people get the idea when it plays from YouTube. You are WAY out of line.

It appears you got away from your keeper again. You really need to grow up and get a real life.

Seriously, this obsession with accusing every thread poster of plagarism isn’t all that becoming.

accusing every thread poster

Not "every" poster. Only the plagiarists.

Just like not EVERY blogger is a blog pimp.

You are wrong and I will tell you why. When I write an entry for my blog, assign it my own title and post it in my own blogspace, I am the author of the blog piece. The easiest way to test that is to libel someone and see who gets sued; dollars to doughnuts it is the blogger.

Your beef is with the content of the blog post. Whether it is an imbedded video or a snippet of a news article, proper attribution is not only considered good form, it is necessary to avoid the charge of plagiarism. You might have the right issue but you propose the wrong cure.

Consider the opposite case and apply your "rule" from your post. I author and post on my own blog an entry drawing heavily upon news stories and even embedding posted-elsewhere video clips. I use many, many sources and give full and proper attribution within the body of my blog in full APA and Chicago style. Are you saying I should not put myself in the spot of the author when I post my masterpiece on FreeRepublic? That's ridiculous. With many sources, should I pick one and park it in the author spot? All of them? leave it blank? Fail to take proper credit for MY contribution to the piece? of course not. I am the author.

So NO, humblegunner's case does not hold water. [with proper attribution to "My Cousin Vinny," written by Dale Launer (1992), quote performed by Marisa Tomei as the character Mona Lisa Vito.]

Now I hope you take that constructive criticism in the same spirit that you wish others would take yours.

Well, well. Guess he’s now done this often enough to get suspended/banned. It was growing quite wearisome.

PS I see no attribution to John Robinson for his copyrighted posting form that you sampled and used in your post. Even if it is "fair use" should you not attribute it?

That's actually a good working example of how YOU are the post author referencing, dare I say plagiarizing, someone else's work!

Beware the petard.

So NO, humblegunner's case does not hold water.

You have listed circumstances that do not apply here.

I author and post on my own blog an entry drawing heavily upon news stories and even embedding posted-elsewhere video clips. I use many, many sources and give full and proper attribution within the body of my blog in full APA and Chicago style.

As may be. We were discussing the simple embedding of a video though.
The poster has nothing but the video and a teaser about it. Totally different.

He wants to be paid blog hits for finding the video and embedding it.

He didn't make the video or post it to Youtube. Screw him, no hits for that.
If he thinks folks would like to see the video, he could post the link here.
Where does his blog need to enter the picture?

Now I hope you take that constructive criticism in the same spirit that you wish others would take yours.

Sure, we obviously have different opinions on this.
That doesn't make you bad.. just wrong. ;-)

Well, I could always log off for a while.

I try to be accommodating when possible.

Watch the BBC if you want real news.
The folks that run it may be commie pinkos, but the BBC puts on REAL news, not celebutards and the Democrat Talking Points.
