FOX News and Good Morning America Steal Pics from Student Newspaper

Some of the best coverage of the UC Davis pepper spray controversy has come from the university’s student newspaper, the California Aggie. And the professional press has noticed. Aggie editor Jason Alpert spoke with Jim Romenesko:

30 or more news organizations have contacted the paper for permission to use its protest photos. “We let them use them as long as they cite California Aggie and the photographer,” he says. “We don’t ask for money.” But many media giants — including Forbes, Fox News, and ABC’s “Good Morning America” — have used images without crediting the college paper. “It’s frustrating,” says Alpert. “It’s poor journalism.”

The photo below, by Jasna Hodzic, is among those used by major media. More pictures from the pepper spray incident at the California Aggie website.
