PBS MediaShift’s ‘Mediatwits’ Explore Plagiarism

pbs-mediashift-logo-final1-470x140Following instances of plagiarism at BuzzFeed and The New York Times in recent weeks, PBS MediaShift executive editor Mark Glaser pulled together POLITICO’s Dylan Byers, The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, Newsweek’s Alex Leo and Poynter’s Kelly McBride for “How Far Does Plagiarism Go in the Age of BuzzFeed?,” the latest installment of “Mediatwits.”

“I think that the problem with an organization like The Huffington Post and BuzzFeed, while it’s a business model where the fun stuff pays for serious journalism to be done, is that you’ve blurred the lines completely between what are the serious practices and serious rules and something that we do on Tumblr for fun,” explains Leo.

Definitely worth a listen this weekend.
