PraliteMonks I’m pretty sure a lot of BuzzFeed is “Flickr curated” or borrowed from other “open-source stuff anyways. (Can’t remember the word I want.)
baldingschemer buzzfeed dumping benny johnson for plagiarism is like guns’n’roses dumping steve adler for heroin problems
mboyle1 BuzzFeed has fired politics editor Benny Johnson for plagiarism.
@jktrotter on Monday I’ll publish something big on this respect
@jktrotter do you think that works?
@jktrotter let’s do 100 an instance
@jktrotter how much?
@jktrotter I guess Benny wasn’t “deeply original” after all.
@jktrotter think I should post a reward for more examples from other writers?
@jktrotter how much you want to bet that it’s more than 40 instances?
kerpen Buzzfeed is changing its “plagiarize everything from Reddit” policy?

Foreign policy news is the opiate of the self appointed cognoscenti.
@rc_kris OK, let me sleep on it.
@rc_kris What do you think it’s worth?
My father is coming to visit. Though we talk often I haven’t seen him in nearly two years. My goodness.
It’s tough 2 b Ben Smith of #buzzfeed. If u fire Benny u set a standard which will be used against u. If u keep him u end your credibility.
JohnPittmanHey Judge says she agrees with TTV that “time is of the essence in dealing with the issues presented concerning their rights under the [NVRA]”.
@GlomarResponder we will protect them
Is there a good place to play chess in the Central Valley?
@DHub2012 I’ll send it in a second.
@PunditReview Please google “Elizabeth O’Bagy Charles C. Johnson.” Thank you.
@DHub2012 Will you read my proposal for a journalism award contest?
My work makes it harder for frauds to prosper. I’ve debunked junk stats on shootings, stopped a reckless war, & exposed a stolen election.
Is anyone else kind of bored by the Palestinian conflict? #Israel
@JamesOKeefeIII we are overdo for a conversation, old friend
@A_H_Goldstein assuming that figure isn’t just self-reported and not talking about the traffic that they buy.
@A_H_Goldstein Their entire business strategy is built upon the idea that they’ll be bought out. That decreases now.
@A_H_Goldstein No, they aren’t insanely profitable. Dog GIFs don’t pay the bills when they are copyrighted.
@A_H_Goldstein Their entire business model is predicated upon an acquisition. Multiple plagiarists make that impossible.
@A_H_Goldstein Don’t count on it. If another person is identified… well…
If someone finds another instance of BuzzFeed plagiarizing, the publication is finished. #buzzfeed
Who wants to bet that @bennyjohnson isn’t alone in plagiarizing?
@ChuckCJohnson I’m nervous to say it publicly
Dear internet, can we use the hashtag #Buzzkill to describe Buzzfeed corruption? Thanks.
Maybe now we can have a conversation about @RosieGray wrote a hit piece against me relying on Booker oppo research? Just a thought.
Isn’t the phrase “deeply original” deeply ridiculous? You either are original or you’re not, @BuzzFeedBen. It’s like “most unique.”
THIS VIDEO EXPLAINS EVERYTHING WRONG WITH BUZZFEED: youtube.com/watch?v=hhxShM…
Someone needs to do a class action lawsuit of all artists, writers, etc. who have had work STOLEN by @BuzzFeed over the years.
It’s quite easy to make a viral website when YOU STEAL the best part of other people’s work, @BuzzFeedBen
@sustain05 I am very interested in economic issues…
joshgreenman It is weird you get in more trouble for plagiarism than for being constantly wrong.
iowahawkblog RT if you are against plagiarism. Or if not, just copy-paste.
@blippoblappo naughty naughty
The best part of #buzzfeed plagiarism story is that it was discovered by two twitter users!
@blippoblappo good work
@crushingbort good work
