‘I’m A Blogger Who Got Ripped Off By A Newspaper’

FishbowlLA editor Tina Dupuy sent an op-ed on spec to the Tampa Tribune.

They published it without telling her, and didn’t pay her.

When she wrote them to ask about this, she was told that generally, the paper didn’t publish unsolicited submissions and it’s not their policy to ask for permission or payment terms with unsolicited work.

In response, she sent them an invoice for $75, and made this YouTube video.
