Earlier this week, I posted a link to Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner's list of the top BBQ in the Big D. And I said that my buddy Daniel had, well, been there, done that. On his site, Daniel noted the striking similarity between the DMN list and his list and that he wasn't credited. Daniel writes, In fact, eight of the nine joints listed by Leslie Brenner were included in my top sixteen list. Given the overall lack of previous coverage in DMN given to most of these places it seemed like parts of my list had just been reused and called original content, so I wrote to Leslie Brenner for clarification. I was told that my list, among many others, was just a starting point, and that since I am merely a blogger that I may not be 'familiar with accepted journalistic practices.' Aww, snap! The Dallas Observer then got in on the action. What say you?
