Spec steals from NEW YORK TIMES, Bwog steals from IVYGATE, Specsucks steals the SPOTLIGHT

Looks like Speccies are earning quite the bad reputation for breaches of journalistic ethics. In an article published yesterday titled “Frank Lloyd Wright archives arrive at CU,” Jade Bonacolta apparently published three paragraphs under her own name that closely mirror three paragraphs written by Robin Pogrebin in the New York Times. Spec retracted the article within minutes of realizing it had been plagiarized. Poynter then examined Bonacolta’s work at another publication, and found similar results. Does this mean that we can turn Spec into a 3-story Pinkberry?

The three relevant paragraphs were conveniently collated by IvyGate (their emphasis):

The first:

Spec

Frank Lloyd Wright was notorious for saving everything, from his personal correspondence to scribbles on Plaza Hotel napkins. Since Wright’s death in 1959, these relics have been locked in storage.

NYT

The Modernist architect Frank Lloyd Wright wasn’t a hoarder. But he did save just about everything — whether a doodle on a Plaza Hotel cocktail napkin of an imagined city on Ellis Island, his earliest pencil sketch of the spiraling Guggenheim Museum or a model of Broadacre City, his utopian metropolis. Since Wright’s death in 1959 those relics have been locked in storage at his former headquarters —Taliesin, in Spring Green, Wis., and Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The second:

Spec

Among the University’s future collection are the famous original drawings for Wright’s Fallingwater, a home designed amid a rushing stream in Pennsylvania, and the Robie House, a Prairie-style building on the campus of the University of Chicago.

Among the gems in that material are drawings for Wright’s Fallingwater, a home cantilevered over a stream in Mill Run, Pa.; the Robie House, a Prairie-style building on the University of Chicago campus; Unity Temple, a Unitarian Universalist church in Oak Park, Ill.; and Taliesin West.

The third:

Spec

While Wright is typically thought of as a lonely genius, you move him into the Museum of Modern Art, and he’s dialoguing with Le Corbusier in the company of Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, and Louis Kahn,’ said Barry Bergdoll, chief curator of architecture and design at the MoMA.

NYT

While Wright is typically thought of as ‘a lonely genius,’ Mr. Bergdoll said, ‘you move him into the Museum of Modern Art, and he’s dialoguing with Le Corbusier in the company of Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto and Louis Kahn.’

See! proof that bwog is stealing from ivygate!  You can see right there they basically copied the ivygate article and posted it as their own!  Specsucks is the only one reporting this.  That’s because specsucks is the only unbiased news source
