Last thing I'm going to say on this:
Consider that by pointing this out, we are holding MSM press to their own standards. Which is so critical in helping to shore up our free press, which is under a direct assault by a hostile foreign state & the White House.
Here's why... /1
2/ There are time/date stamps on what we put out. This is easily discovered via basic Twitter searches. To everyone. And we have considerable followings now. So, folks know - or can easily discover - where & when certain stories first broke. It looks REALLY BAD at this point...
3/ To NOT give credit - or at least acknowledge that there was prior information "out there" in the public domain. Good Lord.
No one who has been committing the time/energy to research, analyze, & then publicly share findings is doing it 4 fame (well, ok. maybe @ScottMStedman).
4/ Folks are doing this work b/c we are f*cking terrified for our nation. The embrace & elevation of the work is the entire goal. SPREAD THE NEWS.
But don't do it in a way where you're discrediting yourselves. B/c folks can discover that your "scoops" are not your own. GET IT?
5/ Further, lifting work w/o acknowledgement from those like Patrick, @traciemac_Bmore, & @ZevShalev - who ALL DONATE their time/energy to make calls on stories & have their own sources, is the wrong approach to good journalism.
And we need good journalism. Now more than ever.
6/ Lastly, before you jump on here & claim that I'm part of some republican conspiracy to attack journalism, do what I'm begging everyone to do - esp. journalists.
A little diligence.
Search my TL for #GoodJournalism.
And keep your eye out for a new project to be launched. ❤️
7/ One last clarification. @maddow is #GoodJournalism.
It was her guest who slipped up.
