Is The State Journal Repeating A Story The Capital Times Produced Weeks Ago?

The Wisconsin State Journal has a story about anglers, including non-English speaking immigrants, who are eating too much toxin-laden fish from Madison lakes.

Pretty similar to a story the Capital Times produced last month, and that I posted on my blog, here.

The State Journal even used as a source the same community organization - - The Madison Environmental Justice Organization - - whose advocacy the Capital Times cited.

Granted that the State Journal interviewed anglers along Lake Mendota, while the Capital Times focused on those a couple of miles away on Lake Monona, but c'mon:

Whatever happened to enterprise journalism?
