You can now listen to Antigua News articles!
As a part of the journalism industry, republishing other reporters’ work is not uncommon. This practice is prevalent even among major news agencies like CNN, Fox, and BBC, who often reproduce articles from other reporters.
However, crediting the original news agency is considered a standard practice, especially when using their photos.
Unfortunately, our online news agency has fallen prey to blatant plagiarism and unauthorized use of our photos without any acknowledgment or credit.
This unethical practice has been carried out by other news agencies, such as Antigua News Room and Antigua Breaking News, who have taken our original article on the Mammoth Pothole in Hatton, reproduced it with the same headline and photo but without any mention of our news agency as the source.
This is not the only one. There are hundreds of original publications that were taken without any credit to the source.
Seeing how these well-established news giants can stoop so low as to steal news from a small, newly established website like ours is disheartening.
We firmly believe that this is a disrespectful, abusive, and unethical practice, and it is essential to acknowledge the hard work and effort put in by journalists to produce original content.
