    I just noticed!

    Comments from below online articles from my local newspaper have been incorporated into a Daily Mail article.

    I'm a bit surprised - anyone can go on to the website and write, as long as you provide an email address.

    I was looking for my nearest (Lancashire) Pizza delivery services... Domino's... Halal...

    I remember reading some of the comments in the original story, on the website of my local paper (I was interested in the reaction).
    The Daily Mail have just gone and directly quoted from those comments - either quoting the username (when it's two names) or simply claiming to quote a 'resident'.

    Should I be surprised by this, or is this normal?

    It's normal.

    They all do it.

    Up here the antics on Celtic forums make the front and back pages of papers.

    Journalism is not what it used to be.

    normal!!

    i remember a while ago the daily mail was doing some story about facebook.. and they used a picture from my friends's facebook without even asking her. she was really suprised and a little bit upset to find her picture on the daily mail website.

    that is allowed by facebook's rules and thats what i don't like about facebook!

    however maybe my friend should have been more wise about what she posted and read the small print!
