12 Oct Drfunkenberry Goes After TMZ
I am little peeved when I look at TMZ and I see 2 stories on their front page that were here 1st. One of them the Michael Jackson song not being original and then the 2nd being the Obama poll of if he really deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.
Here is my This Is It story posted at 1:01 Eastern Time this morning
Here is TMZ’s This Is It story posted 1:58 Eastern Time this afternoon, a full 12 hours later. They were able to talk to Paul Anka, who I did advise wrote the song with Michael, but, let’s be real, TMZ is more connected then me. But to say they were first with the story is straight douchey.
Here is my Obama poll, posted at 10:54 P.M. last night.
Here is TMZ’s Obama poll, posted at 11:55 A.M. today.
The reason I bring up the Obama poll with the Michael Jackson story is that they were right after each other, kind of like you went to someone’s site and read it there and said, hey that’s a good idea, let’s take it but add to it and call it our exclusive. Same material ends up on each other’s site but don’t claim something as an exclusive if it is not is all.
Straight up, I have sent news items to TMZ several times to either never get credited or the story not used. I did not send the MJ story in because of that.
I am not asking for much but to be listed on the blog roll of the web site. The raiders fan page is on TMZ’s blog roll for crying out loud.
TMZ, Harvey, whoever, I always credit you on sources, and stop being like cabbage-head Perez Hitler Hilton and swiping stories and not giving credit because the site is not as big as yours.
It’s lame. A little integrity never hurt anyone. I hope you do the right thing. You have gotten Anka’s side on the story but don’t act like you posted the songs first.
Sorry everyone, but if you are getting pissed on and no one sees, you have to let people know. I put hours and hours into this web site pushing to break into the mainstream, working my bootay off, only to have someone snatch the work I put into it.-Dr.FB
