Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Sex Tape Leaked (Or How To Be A Modern Journalist)


Thursday Claire Zulkey of MediaBistro Toolbox did a riff on one of Brian Clark’s posts.

So far, so good.

Claire’s post was so good it caught the attention of The Daily Telegraph in the UK.

Still good.

The Daily Telegraph in the UK liked the post so much that they decided to change the headline and run it as their own work.

Not Good At All.

(oh, about the Jolie/Pitt sex tape. Doesn’t exist. Just practicing my Journalistic Integrity.)

    My fault! I should have included that!


  2. […] With a resumé like Claire’s you’d think she wouldn’t notice or care too much about the occasional rip-off. But it looks like she does. Other people care too. Isn’t that uptight of them? […]

  3. kid mercury Says:

    what about the end of plagiarism? and isnt the value of new media less about content and more about being a resource?

    i’m not saying what was done was cool. just questioning how much it matters.

  4. chartreuse Says:

    I knew that was coming.🙂

    I don’t think it matters much to most of us. But this is not an example of someone remixing someone else’s content.

    This is taking the book Fight Club and saying you wrote it.

    A very big difference.

    One your ideas are out there, they are gone. But to take a complete work and to claim it as your own is beyond the pale.

    (Bt the way, ‘Beyond The Pale’ by Big Audio Dynomite should be remixed by a modern artist. It’s a great song!)

  5. Brian Says:

    The point is old media looking down their noses at the blogging rabble and pulling stuff like this. You won’t hear the Telegraph agreeing with liberal notions of copyright when it comes to their content.

  6. kid mercury Says:

    but, alas, some say fight club is a stolen work in the first place….🙂

    But to take a complete work and to claim it as your own is beyond the pale.

    i’m sure some photographers would say their pictures are complete works, no? but you’re taking them. why? because your audience appreciates them, it adds value to your posts, and after all, you’re remixing them — so it’s not like you’re cannabalizing the value of a photographer who puts his/her photos on flickr; instead, your remix creates new, original value. and likewise, isnt a newspaper just a remix of a bunch of different writers? and also likewise, how is it really stealing from the original author’s source of value? if anything, since it’s getting some buzz online, i’d say it was a good thing for brian.🙂

    @ brian: no doubt what you say regarding old media is true. but what’s unfortunate IMO is that bloggers devote the attention of their audiences to such “theft” — doing so is essentially playing the old media game and valuing what old media values (content), which is exactly what bloggers should be devaluing (doubly so for bloggers who view old media as competitors).

    i agree a big mistake was made — but IMO the mistake wasnt in ripping off a blogger. it was in the Telegraph failing to make itself a valuable resource by not linking to the blogger.

  7. Brian Says:

    I don’t think it was a “mistake” — in none of this person’s rule books is there a grey area about stealing content. But I otherwise hear what you’re saying.

  8. Brian Says:

    >>>but, alas, some say fight club is a stolen work in the first place…

    Those people lack the capacity to understand contemporaneous social commentary. As if only one person is allowed to see truth at any given time. Or that one person cannot take another’s observations and tell an even better story.

    Of course, I know you’re smarter than that yourself, Kid.

  9. Liz Strauss Says:

    Brian and Char are right. There’s no way this is a mistake. Old Mass Media needs to take this one to the chin and she needs to lose her job over it. Bloggers show more respect. As I said over at your blog (and would’ve blogged at mine Brian — if this damn book project wasn’t due Monday) Things like this don’t happen this way just one time. Not this blatantly.

    This is a product of a culture. It starts small and gets bigger. We slowly become what we look at most. Somehow that woman thinks it’s okay to do that as long as no one knows and for a long time no one would. She just didn’t know the world had changed.

    Bet if you look she’s been doing it for quite a while.


  10. Brian, Char and Liz are right: there is no mistake, here, folks. I almost don’t care if Zulkey cares, because baby, I am BEYOND outraged on her behalf.

    Do you Digg? I do. Here’s a link to the first person who floated this on Digg:

    Go. Sign up. Bring this to the forefront. Out this loser. What she did is cheap, nasty, dark-of-night, outright theft. I don’t care if you’re writing about f*cking pantyhose–no one should think it’s okay to sneak in and steal your sh*t. It’s theft, theft, THEFT!

    And it will not stand. Unless, of course, we let it…

  12. TerryC Says:

    I agree. Take them to the mat!

  13. Brian Says:

    Assuming this is true, we can now see the problem when you don’t even post to your own blog.

  14. TerryC Says:

    Weak.

    I don’t believe her.

  15. Mr Angry Says:

    That explanation is extremely implausible. Mind you, I also find it implausible that a newspaper thinks it can straight up steal someone’s work and get away with it.

    A very bad mistake of some description was made, but what? The mistake of thinking that they could take something circulated in email and reproduce it in whole, giving the impression it was their original work or the mistake of thinking a forwarded joke was a submission of work by a journalist? A very unprofessional lapse whichever way you look at it.


  16. All i can say is “pants on fire….”


  17. still great publicity for Brian – so all is good for the copyblogggaaa

  18. aboutmakingmoney Says:

    Thats funny. but all jounalist do that. If you scan through a few of you local papers over a few days you will see a few articles being reused by different jounalists.

  19. manbeast Says:

    Dear Brad and Angelina Sex Tape Leaked,

    I think they should use different tapes if their tapes are going to leak.

    Signed,

    Manbeast.

    “If you scan through a few of you local papers over a few days you will see a few articles being reused by different jounalists.” Isn’t that mostly because they were published by a news agency and can thus be used by various papers (assuming they’re quoting the source, that is…). Well, don’t know. But nice heading on the blog entry, made me look🙂

    That’s called syndication, and they pay for that.

    This was not that.

    I did happen to laugh when i read the “This is taking the book Fight Club and saying you wrote it.” and then “some say fight club is a stolen work in the first place…. :)” Douglas Coupland in the house?

  23. aboutmakingmoney Says:

    Hanna and Brian :

    There you go learn something new. Alway thought journalist had to write their own version of the same news but not direct copy off 1 article.

  25. Beau Peep Says:

    This is also a rip-off.

    Indian Cow

    HE IS THE COW. “The cow is a successful animal. Also he is 4 footed, And because he is female, he give milks, [ but will do so when he is got child.] He is sacred to Hindus and useful to man. But he has got four legs together. Two are forward and two are afterwards. His whole body can be utilised for use. More so the milk. Milk comes from 4 taps attached to his basement. [horses dont have any such attachment] What can it do? Various ghee, butter, cream, curd, why and the condensed milk and so forth. Also he is useful to cobbler, watermans and mankind generally. His motion is slow only because he is of lazy species. Also his other motion… gober (dung)] is much useful to trees, plants as well as for making flat cakes [like Pizza] , in hand, and drying in the sun. Cow is the only animal that extricates his feeding after eating. Then afterwards she chew with his teeth whom are situated in the inside of the mouth. He is incessantly in the meadows in the grass. His only attacking and defending organ is the horns, specially so when he is got child.

    This is done by knowing his head whereby he causes the weapons to be paralleled to the ground of the earth and instantly proceed with great velocity forwards. He has got tails also, situated in the backyard, but not like similar animals. It has hairs on the other end of the other side. This is done to frighten away the flies.

    Vaginalina Jolie. Ode to a dirty adultering slut! She is the quintessential yeasty-twat twit-whore. The hypocritical seeker of the sloppy Aniston seconds should invest in liposuction of those gnarly sausage lips to augment her bony arse, so her head might be better nestled while up there.

    Vag Jolie…the apple does not fall far from the nasty Jon Voight. You have your father’s bizarre, exaggerated facial twists and pus-bucket cheating heart.
