Attribution

| No Comments

In the Pioneer Press' article, "Minnesota ranch in refuge from sex trafficking," there are signs of poor attribution.

In the article the author cites an article from Minnesota Public Radio, but does not offer any other attribution within the story. The story is short and brief and does not offer many details about the story. In comparison to the article written by Minnesota Public Radio, there is a noticeable difference in the amount of work that was put into the story.

The Pioneer Press story seems as if they transcribed a summary of the article written by Minnesota Public Radio and did not include any additional information. If the information was found elsewhere it is not noted in the article.

The article in the Pioneer Press would have been better if more sources were used in addition to the Minnesota Public Radio article.
