Media Watch: Proper Attribution

I have been linking here in depth investigative reports by Syed Saleem Shahzad, Asia Times Online's Pakistan Bureau Chief. The Daily News Editorial Page Editor Omar Qureishi, writing under his by line in the News on Sunday, [A suicide bombing and Haji Namdar] quotes from this generic link for The Long War Journal.

In a professional journalistic sense, saying "Just read on the Long War Journal blog (, which quoted an Asia Times report as saying..." and then paraphrasing the investigative work of Syed Saleem Shahzad robs Mr Shahzad of due credit.

In my humble view, Qureshi should have credited fellow Palkistani Shahzad for the report.
