L’Unità copia Wikipedia e Repubblica

Il giornalismo in Italia nel 2016: l’Unità, nell’articolo pubblicato in occasione della vittoria di Alexander Van der Bellen alle elezioni presidenziali austriache, copia spudoratamente interi brani di un articolo di Wikipedia e di un articolo di Repubblica. Un vero e proprio copincolla, senza nemmeno prendersi il disturbo di modificare il testo – e senza citare la fonte, ça va sans dire.

Giudicate voi stessi:

Qui sopra c’è lo screenshot dell’articolo di Wikipedia.

Qui sopra c’è lo screenshot di quello di Repubblica.

Ed ecco lo screenshot del pezzo dell’Unità: le parti inscritte nel quadrato sono fregate da Wiki, quelle sottolineate sono prese da Repubblica.

Unita

In sostanza, l’Unità ha copiato tutto l’articolo, attingendo a piene mani da Repubblica e Wikipedia senza citare le fonti. Ma questo è “giornalismo 2.0”, colpa nostra che non siamo aggiornati.

Which country executes the most?

In absolute numbers, China, which is not a big surprise, given its huge population:

If we instead look at the issue taking into account the population size of each country, we get quite a different ranking:

Source: I divided the executions reported in the first graph by the population of each state, the figures of which I retrieved on the English Wikipedia.

Iran is first with 1.23 executions per 100000 inhabitants, followed by Saudi Arabia with 0.51. All the other countries lag behind.
