USA Today swipes graphic from Scott Bateman

Scott Bateman’s infographic on the recent cold spell that he posted on his Tumblr site last Friday ended up in USA Today yesterday – kind of. The infographic that ran in USA Today was cleaned up (language), but essentially left intact (see below).

The incident was reported by Jim Romensko. USA Today’s editor-in-chief David Callaway apologized to Scott and assured that he was addressing the issue to make sure Scott receives the proper credit and the lapses inside the paper were addressed.
