Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Major props to CBS 11 and "award-winning reporter" J.D. Miles for following up on our Rec Shop coverage from earlier this week by a) adding nothing new to the story, b) blatantly filming a computer logged onto DC9 without giving any credit to the paper (although, score, you can like totally see my byline), and c) using freelance photographer Gloria Levario's images from the event, shot on assignment for us, without permission from either us or her.

Also: Way to spell the name of your story's main source incorrectly (it's "Shing," guys, not "Sheen").

You guys rock. Just glad we could help!

(For what it's worth, CBS 11 tells us they intended to credit us, but couldn't because of a "technical glitch.")

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
