FTVLive knows what it is like to have people steal your stories, it happens to us on almost a daily basis.
Some other outlet swipes a story from FTVLive and gives us no credit for doing their work for them. It is lowball Journalism being done by jealous people that can't be bothered enough to do their own work.
But, our work is most often stolen by other blogs or newspapers, not by the police.
KOB in Albuquerque claims that the Albuquerque Police Department is sharing stories that they are working on with other stations in town.
KOB did a story, but did not contact the Albuquerque Police Department until after they aired the story for comment. The station feared that the cops would share the story with KOB's competitors.
