On Saturday, Politico published a story by Patrick Gavin on Publicity Guru Tammy Haddad‘s famous brunch. Then on Sunday, The Daily Caller, which had no presence at the WHCD, saw fit to reprint the exact same story with an identical headline and Gavin’s byline, making a reader wonder if Gavin had suddenly jumped ship for the newer publication.
He didn’t. The Daily Caller reprinted the story under “fair use” rules with “Politico” next to Gavin’s name. The DC story linked to Politico‘s story saying, “Full story,” except it was the same “full” story minus one blind quip from a reporter at the end.
