I had something very frustrating happen today.
A week and a half ago I learned that a local business had changed ownership. I called both local locations of the business the day the change in ownership occurred and was unable to reach a spokesperson who could talk with me.
I went on my Facebook page and sent one of the owners a message letting him know I wanted to do an article about his new ownership of the business. I detailed some of the information I wanted to ask him and waited to hear from him.
This afternoon I got a message from him. He typed "Hello Cookie..The Article just hit the Mercury register today.."- as if he expected me to copy the other newspaper. Um, last time I checked that's called plagerism- besides, I don't work that way.
I let him know if he wanted to be included in my newspaper in the future to contact me directly because I don't copy other people's work.-
