Media Monday at the Montgomery Sentinel

Jul 7, 2015

Traditional media is dissolving....journalistic ethics....and professional codes of conduct just aren't what they used to be. Which is somewhat surprising in this age of the internet. 

It turns out the Internet is a two edged it is very easy to double check the originality of a cartoon. On the other side, it's so easy to steal from the Internet, there is a growing number ne'er-do-wells who do just that.

In the old days (pre-Internet) plagiarists would have to copy the in the digital Internet age they don't even bother copying OR plagiarising it's just cut, copy 'n' paste STEALING. Meaning the thieves don't even bother trying to hide their theft by copying a cartoon so the art is at least in their own drawing style.
