News releases
By Ray Massey


August 18, 2009

I appreciate that SitNews publishes news releases verbatim from many organizations, including ours (Forest Service). I see it as a public service as long as attribution is given.

You might want to move attribution to the top of the story so readers know they are reading a SEACC release, or a Forest Service release.

I see your service as a news amalgamation service, not a news reporting service.
