LA Journalist Angered by Nightline Story Lift

Amanda Hess, lifestyle editor at GOOD, has a right to be upset. As she tweeted last night, Nightline on Thursday completely ripped off her November 2011 profile of rising male porn star James Deen:

The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple has picked up on this topic today (which is how we found out about it). Although the ABC News report by Cecilia Vega seems to be the TV equivalent of the Web’s rampant and often egregious lack of proper hat tipping, the news magazine doesn’t quite see it that way.

Neither, according to Wemple, does Deen.
