MSNBC used our content sans permission

I am used to small websites taking content from one of ours and posting without authorization or credit. What can you do? But it always irritates me when one of the big players does.

MSNBC took direct quotes from our profile of Paige Palmer and posted it on their site without any credit to us.

That’s just wrong.

Do your own work! Or at least ask for permission (we would have given) or give credit.

When the NY Times quoted our Dante Lavelli story, they gave proper credit.
But MSNBC is far from the NY Times.
