“Oh Look,” He Said, “I Can Quote, Too”

AppleInsider couldn’t be bothered to do their own research, so they just copied and quoted Marco Arment’s article about recent app corruption:

According to the developer, “lots of anxiety and research” helped him discover that the problem was a “a seemingly corrupt update being distributed by the App Store in some regions.” The U.S. and U.K. were hit with the unusable file, while Australia appeared to remain unscathed.

Ironically, this comes a single day after Arment linked to Matthew Panzarino’s piece regarding ripped articles burying their source with this comment:

But the bigger problem is the practice of news sites rewriting articles from source sites while adding little to no original value. In those cases, where they put the source link doesn’t matter, because as I wrote a few months ago, they replace the need to view the source article.
