As someone whose stuff is “borrowed” semi-regularly by mainstream media outlets without attribution, I tend to side with the bloggers on this one (while admitting that I don’t know the whole story.)
There are also other forces at work here. Time limits, restrictions by Fox News, not everything gets mentioned that should be. I also think that with the daily threats that Beck gets, he is mindful of not needlessly endangering others. Just a thought.
Sometimes I think that everyone is so engrossed in seeing attribution and credit (though well deserved I’m sure), that we forget what we are fighting for. Our country and our freedom. It would be cold comfort to see your name in lights from a gulag.
