@Kun_ADR so is it my job to Google Famitsu or should they, the FUCKING VIDEO GAME JOURNALISTS, start their article with "Famitsu, the well known Japanese gaming magazine that comes out weekly" or something like that?
I am just surprised to see how little knowledge on journalism you people here have but yet have a need to comment it.

Regarding your question on how they should link to the source. Here is a good example http://gematsu.com/2017/10/... and this is only a good linking example, the article also sucks balls. Gematsu had no access to the magazine, and I am sure the author of this crap also did not have access so he must have found the info somewhere online. Chances are they used the same source but because they are greedyf**ks that think their users will just use that source in the future, they did not want to link to it. It's not just a moral obligation, it's a rule of thumb when reporting on news to mention your source. If we did not have sourcing I could just write an article stating that an African magazine published a story of an alien invasion. Would you believe me? Probably not... See the difference now or should I elaborate further?
