Health/medical journalism? Or plagiarism?

In the past two weeks, I've discovered three examples of health/medical stories apparently being lifted directly from news releases.

One on WebMD and two on HealthDay - here and here.

This isn't journalism.

In fact, in some of these cases, the stories are worse than the original news release!
