Jim Romenesko’s blog/column on the Poynter.org web site has long been a “must read” among journalists around the country so that he is linking our story about New Rochelle Patch means reporters at every paper in the United States now know what Patch did in stealing our work and passing it off as their own. Still no reply to my request that they remove the image so it looks like I need to take “next steps” to force them to take it down or pay up for using my work on their site.
UPDATE: MediaBistro, another side widely read by journalists, has their own version, Hearst Sees a Future in the Tablet While Patch Struggles in New Rochelle, Plus Other News of the Day. The article states, incorrectly, that the photo has been taken down. As of Tuesday morning it is still there.
