The independent news outlet True Pundit has been nominated for the prestigious T.S. Eliot Award, for banality in journalism. The award is given to only the most hackneyed journalists, who best embody the spirit of imitation now held in such high regard.
The self-appointed kings of copy & paste have scraped articles from such obscure sources as Fox, the Western Journal and the Washington Examiner, none of which would have the popularity they now enjoy without being copied by True Pundit.
The only news outlet they haven’t lifted articles from directly is the Columbian Post. When reached for comment, True Pundit Scraper-in-Chief Thomas Paine said, “Columbian Post’s content is just too fresh, and they actually cite their sources beneath their articles, it’s madness!”
Unlike True Pundit, the Columbian Post takes a very unconventional approach to reporting the news: they write their own content.
When asked about the mysterious source of this unique content, Editor-in-Chief Danny Wolf said, “We have these things called…columnists, and they practice an arcane form of wizardry known as ‘writing.’ I’m not quite sure how it works, exactly.”
