Local media maniac Jeff Wattrick watched local news for 24 hours (or attempted to but was stymied by a DVR #Fail) and only found one instance of a Curbed Detroit story being ripped off. Thanks Action 7 News! The other thing you should know about the venture, aside from the fact that this is extremely inadvisable for the average human, is that it did not all suck. "It’s surprising how much first-rate reporting was buried in the midst of bleeds/ledes coverage and marathon weather forecasts. Sometimes it’s easy to miss substance when you’re distracted by “Breaking News Alerts” about non-fatal tanker crashes that actually happened several hours earlier.' [Deadline Detroit]
