Hardcore Gossip Fudging?

I guess someone’s trying to make a case that elements of a recent post on www.hardcoregossip.com about photog Roy Stuart were apparently lifted from another source.

In making her case, Violet Blue the sex writer not the porn star blogs: “At minumium, I read 65 sex news blogs a day as Assistant Editor at Fleshbot, several times a day — and that’s not counting the (over) 150 I skim twice a week for the Sex Blog Roundup. One of the main components of my new day job is to track links to sex stories and unusual sex items throughout the day (and night, as I am an insomniac). I watch the breadcrumb trails as links get picked up by different sites. I see who gets the links first, where they come from, and who gives credit where credit is due.”

Blue continues: Today, I visited a site www.hardcoregossip.com] in my regular rotation. A post said, “Introducing Roy Stuart.” (sorry, no permalinks but post is screencapped on right) Not new news, but I love Stuart’s work so I can appreciate the idea, and so I read on. The text seemed very, very familiar. It was an eerie feeling. I wondered if maybe I had written this text before, as I have written about Stuart’s work many times over the past 5+ years for Good Vibes and my own site.

On a whim, I Googled a few sentences at the bottom of the post. For some strange reason I’ve never thought to Google multiple sentences, but imagine my surprise when the search yielded pay dirt in the form of the decsription on Taschen’s site. Okay, but why was the rest so familiar, I thought?

I grabbed an entire paragraph from the top, and came up with the source for the contents of almost the entire post (save for the paragraph from Taschen): an article reviewing Roy Stuart’s book Roy Stuart II by Layne Winklebleck, on Spectator.

There’s a word for this folks… brilliant! Now pass the crack pipe.

Gene sez just so you know, in giving credit where the credit is due dept., Fleshbot for whom Blue is the assistant editor, credits Xbiz.com with a story about Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman being asked to step down as a result of taking pictures for Playboy.com. That story was broken by, oops, the Associated Press a full day before, http://www.kesq.com/Global/story.asp?S=3367147
