    This Flyertalk article cites Business Insider as its source. Business Insider cites Newsweek as its source. The Newsweek article cites the Daily Mail newspaper’s website. And the Daily Mail’s article cites the WWL-TV website. After reading all of the articles on all of these websites, it looks like ONLY the WWL-TV article is the result of original reporting. Everyone else just rewrote and repackaged. So why does Flyertalk not just link directly to the WWL-TV website?
