Blog breaks Lance Armstrong story; papers fail to attribute…

We tend not to make too much fuss about lack attribution of stories that arise from Slugger; but it is worth making the point every now and then that blogs are avidly read by most journos, and too rarely acknowledged by them. This morning Conall put up a story on Lance Armstrong coming to Ireland to race, and true to form, the copy is being written without the least acknowledgement of where it came from… Come guys; spread it around!! We attribute; why can’t you?
