Scratch that, NNI should stop plagiarizing The Express Tribune

Posted on Updated on

[update: Salim Bokhari, editor, The Nation has clarified that The Nation’s web desk picked up the story from local news agency NNI which had copy/pasted and released the Tribune story verbatim as their own]

An email I sent to our editor today:

The Nation’s web desk has been plagiarizing our stories on a daily basis, verbatim, without giving any credit to Tribune. I have been unable to contact them through their contacts provided on the website. I strongly recommend that we prevent this from becoming a pattern for local news online. Hope something can be done.

Regards,
