NYTiwes.com copy-and-paste job

NYTiwes.com is a fake news site, and it recently garnered attention by publishing a death hoax about singer Demi Lovato.  (LeadStories debunked the hoax here.) 

NYTiwes.com also does this annoying thing where they copy-and-paste the entirety of a story from another news outlet, and then insert one line at the end acknowledging the source.  For instance, this post titled "Margot Robbie Joins Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron in Fox News Movie" copies the entirety of a Hollywood Reporter article.  At the bottom of the post it says: "Source: hollywoodreporter.com"
   

At least they're not taking credit for writing the story.
