Stories I’ve broken on this blog have subsequently been picked up by mainstream news outlets including Politico, BuzzFeed UK, The Daily Beast, Press Gazette, Techdirt, Popehat, FoodMed.net, the Comic Book Legal Defence Fund, and more.

*On August 8, 2017, I sent this story to a reporter at The Daily Beast, which then published my scoop later that month. I wasn’t credited on the article, so I sent an attribution request to executive editor Noah Shachtman, who told me that Daily Beast reporter Ben Collins had found this story independent of me, and that the similarities between the two stories were coincidental.
