Investigation into London Weekly at HMI

Would you work for nothing in the hope of earning some commission from a newspaper that appears to nick content – from editorial to the words on their own marketing website – from all over the web? 

There’s an ongoing investigation into the launch of London Weekly taking place at Help Me Investigate, and across various blogs including Online Journalism Blog. Industry pundits, academics, students and journalists are concerned with the practices of the organisation behind the tile, Invincible Group. 

Read more about London Weekly and Invincible Group here and if you agree that something’s up follow the instructions at the bottom of Paul’s blog post to help spread the word and warn those who might end up investing their time in the project.
