Granted, in the grand scheme of things, this is a minor quibble. But, just for the record:
On December 16th, I received a tip from a friend to go check out what was going on at the UW-Fox Valley with regard to “green” parking spots. As I wrote in this post, the students were organizing a cyber-backlash against campus dean Dr. James Perry, who suggested the campus should institute more “green” parking spots, which could only be used if students drove a low-emitting vehicle.
Fifteen days later, on New Year’s Eve, the Wisconsin State Journal issued this story – many parts which could have been cut and pasted directly from the WPRI post. It contained no recognition,and no attribution for WPRI originally breaking the story.
Obviously, we wrote the post because we thought it was newsworthy – and it’s cool that larger media outlets picked up the story. But a little courtesy would be welcome.
