Lazy Journalism

It is quite common to see the same story appear word for word in two or three Nairobi tabloids (this week story on Luo paper millionaires runs in both the Weekly Citizen and Independent) but you rarely expect to find this in the major papers. However both the Nation and Standard, have the same story on telecommunication sector in the February papers, Standard on page FS5 and Nation on page B9 – word for word, except with minor alterations.

There have also been instances where journalists plagiarized articles people put online. Quite low!

Can you kindly post the story of the Luo paper millionaires for those of us Stateside who do not have access to the Weekly Citizen and Independent? Thanks.
