Everyone has known for a while now that the Telegram and Gazette is a joke of a newspaper. They employ Old Balls. They employ Spanky McFarlane. They employ Sam Allen, the girl who blatantly ripped off our blog on the best cut through streets in Worcester. Well, today they hit an all time low when they published this beaut:

Wow. Just wow. How pathetic and low can the Telegram and Gazette get? I’ve seen many a butthurt turtle hater laugh at us when we suggest that we’re the only relevant media source in Worcester County. But who can even attempt to deny it now? They didn’t even try to hide their blatant plagiarism. They could’ve waited a month or so before posting this gem and people probably would’ve forgotten about the one we published two days ago. But nope. They just couldn’t resist. And to top it off the three schools that they lead off with are the Auburn Dandies, the Millbury Woolies, and the Sutton Suzies and Sammies.

This is the guy who wrote the story:

Hey Mike, didn’t they teach you at Fitchburg State how to not be an unoriginal schmuck? Second rate journalism at its finest. Never seen a guy more suited for employment at the Telegram and Gazette.

    love how you get so mad at ppl biting your ideas when your idea was to bite everything that barstoolsports does. you even added “sports” to your domain name al though you post 0 stories about sports and admittedly browse barstool for news/steal their vine videos, etc for content

    Well Turtleboy give the Telegram something more fun to rip off. During the big Baldino purge all sorts of innocent comments got deleted by the T&G even though Carlo bloggings that generated those comments still exist.

    Even a Steven Feldman LTE (5/31/15) had its comments deleted. An innocent Doug P. Magada comment got the boot. That Feldman letter was in response to the Carlo LTE of 5/20/15.

    ‘Telegram Comment-Gate… the big Carlo comment coverup!’ would be a fun title for a Turtle article. You could dare the Telegram to steal that article and see what they do with that one.
