The Journal Inquirer apparently stands ready to continue challenging what it calls the Courant’s “daily misappropriation” of its news coverage.
In a story published today, JI Managing Editor Chris Powell says, “The Courant’s confession to plagiarism and its pledge to correct it do not resolve the bigger problem: the Courant’s daily misappropriation of the work of the Journal Inquirer and other competing papers.”
He adds: “The Courant’s statement suggests that the Courant plans to continue this misappropriation. If it does continue, the JI will continue to challenge it.”
The statement comes in a follow-up to the JI’s earlier story about how the Courant has been using coverage from other area newspapers, sometimes with attribution and sometimes without.
Over the weekend, the Courant pledged to stop using other papers’ stories without attribution, but did not say it planned to stop using the stories altogether.
