  • BuzzFeed changes posts that swiped text

    Gawker | Our Bad Media

    BuzzFeed has updated and attached corrections to three articles by Benny Johnson that swiped passages from other sources, J.K. Trotter reports in Gawker. The notes (1, 2, 3) were added Thursday afternoon.

    Two Twitter users with the names @blippoblappo and @crushingbort outlined examples of Johnson lifting text, in one case from a press release from U.S. Rep. Sam Johnson.

    BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith told Trotter BuzzFeed was “grateful to @blippoblappo and @crushingbort” for alerting it to the lifted text and said Johnson, the publication’s viral politics editor, “is one of the web’s deeply original writers, as is clear from his body of work.”

  • Economist updates article after man’s mother objects to his photo

    The Economist published a blog post that tried to show negative stereotypes of tourists from different countries are often untrue and unfair.

    And by stereotypes, they mean:

    Germans? Humourless and demanding. Americans? Loud with garish shorts. Chinese? Rude. Canadians? Actually Canadians are all quite nice. And the Brits? Drunken, violent louts

    The original version of the article featured a picture of a young British fellow “on a night out in Mallorca.” This upset the man’s mother, and she contacted the publication to ask that it not tar him with the aforementioned “drunken, violent” brush.

    Well, The Economist was only happy to comply. It changed the photo and added this note to the bottom of the story:

    Note: This blogpost was originally illustrated with a photograph of a young British man on a night out in Mallorca.

    “We are deeply troubled by this news and are concerned for the welfare of Jason, Yeganeh and two others said to have been detained with them,” (foreign editor Douglas) Jehl said in a statement.

    Rezaian is the Tehran correspondent for the paper. He hasn’t tweeted since July 21. Londoño reported that Rezaian’s wife is also a journalist. She hasn’t tweeted since July 20.

    Rezaian, 38, holds American and Iranian citizenship. Yeganeh, an Iranian citizen who has applied for U.S. permanent residency, works as a correspondent for the National, a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates.
