Yesterday Melenda Deslatte and Michael Kunzleman at the AP did in fact.
Gulf Oil Spill Case: Buddy Caldwell, Louisiana Attorney General, Has Already Spent Nearly $24 Million ~ AP via The Huffington Post
I’ll let all you newbies out there in on a little secret. Slabbed was one of a select group of local blogs everyone in the National Media read during the oil spill, often times ripping off our material without any attribution. My own perspective is it is hard to respect anyone in the media that does not have the common decency to attribute where they got their story leads which is why I have such little respect for the national media.
So what in the heck does this all have to do with Buddy Caldwell and the Huff Po? Mainly because on the “Around the Web” widget at the bottom of the story that I linked above, Slabbed’s previous coverage of Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is linked at the #2 slot right below Bloomberg. I personally think we should be #1. 😉
Well tickle my ass with a feather…….
