    Momberg is being disingenuous. If a publication picks up a story from another publication, it should clearly credit that publication as the source, in exactly the same way as it should inform its readers of all sources of information for the sake of credibility.
    The problem Momberg et al face is that news aggregators like News24 do it all by numbers, not editors. For now readers may accept that. But in future? I don’t think so, by which time the aggregators will have lost their credibility, a bit like the penny press of days long gone. It may seem a cheap and easy climb now, but I reckon it will turn into a very slippery slope, very quickly.
