Some Autism Coverage in the Lynn News

A grateful acknowledgement to the Lynn News for their coverage of the Autism Awareness Cup accompanied by a minor ethical quibble and also some images from today at work.


At the end of this post I will be sharing some images from work today, but it is mainly about the Lynn News (and, one ethical quibble aside, positive about them).


On Sunday the inaugural Autism Awareness Cup took place on the astroturf at Lynnsport, and on Monday I produced this blog post about the event:

Before creating the blog post I had also created a facebook photo album about the event.

Having published the blog post I then produced this email:

For clarification of the intended recipients, here is a second image…

Today the Lynn News produced the following:


You will note that save for the misplaced while between cup winners and Holland every word of this article appears in my blog post. While I thank the Lynn News unreseverdly for printing a story about this event, which will be the first of many, I would have been even more grateful had there been some acknowledgement, and maybe a mention of my blog.

I am a keen photographer, so that most of my own posts contain photos. I am a keen cricket fan and often write about that subject. I also focus a lot on politics and on nature.

  1. You are right. You should get credit for your work. I can’t believe people still don’t get the sharing idea. If you share you give credit to the source. I think most of us here on wp get that, but I have noticed not everyone elsewhere get that.
