Allahpundit Adds ‘Thief’ To His Resume

Blogosphere • Views: 3,658

Am I imagining things, or did LGF break a story about Reuters cropping photographs yesterday? Didn’t Killgore Trout find the first photo and tip me off? Wasn’t LGF the first to publish this? And haven’t we been credited for breaking the story by Haaretz, the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli government, the Weekly Standard, and Commentary Magazine, to name just a few?

Did I just imagine all that? No? It really happened?

So what kind of vindictive, unprofessional, unethical creep would write about this story and give all the credit to other people, knowing full well that the story originated at LGF?

This dishonest dirtbag goes by the name “Allahpundit,” and he writes for Hot Air.

UPDATE at 6/8/10 10:14:08 am:

Allahpundit has added a whiny update, complaining about being caught in unethical behavior, and pretending it was a mistake. Just like Reuters made a mistake cropping the photos.

I’ll just point out that numerous sources had already credited LGF for the story when Allahpundit decided to ignore us. So the options are: 1) he’s incompetent, or unwilling to spend time researching sources, or 2) he’s a dishonest dirtbag who thought I wouldn’t bust him publicly for it. Take your pick.

UPDATE at 6/8/10 11:00:21 am:

Allahpundit may be playing dumb, but his Neanderthal readers certainly knew what he was up to. Among a slew of insults, there are several comments like this:

Allah, TY for not linking to Charles.

The worst aspect of 'typical familyism' (as media-merchandised) is that it glorifies involuntary homogenization.
