Techno-journalists and 'bloggers' get the blame for lazy coverage and the lack of journalism but the mainstream media outlets can sink pretty low.

This +The Guardian technology 'blog' offers 'links' to cover up what looked to me like plagiarism at first glance. The Guardian "writer" (at the behest, mind you, of his editor) copies the first paragraph of several stories without attribution and simply places links above them (with no captioning to explain what's what).

The original +Bloomberg News story below

I first noticed the similarity because Google News placed The Guardian piece beside the same Bloomberg article in +The Times of India

Good job +*****

I guess since they can no longer hack people's phones the British MSM are so hard up for 'content' they will skirt plagiarism instead of stooping to original reporting.
