Fox News Steals Our Stuff, Backs Off When We Notice

Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

On Friday, we noticed that one of our blog posts, about a freaky Florida campaign video set on a slave ship, had been stolen pretty much in its entirety and pasted up on the Fox News website, byline and all. Yesterday, New Times Editor Eric Barton offered to forgo legal action if Fox gave us half an hour on the phone with Bill O'Reilly. We didn't hear back, but later that day, the portion of the Fox post featuring our work was removed; only the video remains, and the comments section has been closed.


There's a picture of their original post after the jump, preserved just in case somebody decided to just erase evidence.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
