When Being First...really isn't

FTVLive FIRST reported the news that Sam Champion was leaving Good Morning America and headed to The Weather Channel. 

FTVLive first posted the story shortly after 10AM and Tweeted it out soon after that. The story was retweeted and tweeted scores of times after FTVLive's initial post. 

Just minutes later we followed up the first story with the news that Ginger Zee would be taking over for Champion on GMA. 

Again, we tweeted the story out and once again it was retweeted a number of times.

Almost an hour after FTVLive FIRST broke the news, the website TVNewser posted the story. Screen capture below:

Did they credit FTVLive with breaking the story?


Did they give FTVLive props for being the FIRST to have the news?


No, TVNewser posted the story 2 minutes prior to 11AM with the claim that it was "First on TVNewser".

Not sure what their definition of being first is....but in most people's minds, this ain't it.
