Poynter.org

That was Reuters, which offered $100. “This experience for me is not about making money,” says Shawna Malvini Redden, who posted photos from the Southwest plane that developed a six-foot hole in the fuselage in mid-air. “But the people who have run the photos without a photo credit is concerning to me. I teach communication classes and talk about plagiarism all day long.”
