Daily Mail Rumbled Nicking Entire Article, Concept and Photos From Blogger

By Gary Cutlack on at

A frustrated blogger caught the Daily Mail lifting an entire article, with the shameless celebrity gusset portal stealing words, photos and certain phrases from a list feature on tourist vandalism he'd put together just a day earlier.

The discovery was made by X J Selman, who tweeted: "I have been plagiarized by Daily Mail," and provided links to his original piece and the identikit clone put together by the Mail's Ruth Styles for comparison.

As it often does when accused of shady work, the Mail has attempted a bit of a backtrack without admitting any liability. It's now linking through to the site that ran the original piece -- although it's not going so far as to link to the actual story as that'd make it all a bit too obvious. [TNW]
