Journatic Regroups After 2012 Debacle

Journatic, which uses algorithms to report community news, reeled last year when it was hit with charges of plagiarism and quote fabrication and was found to have published some stories using aliases. But the company has since clawed its way through a thorough ethics investigation and back toward the goal co-founder and CEO Brian Timpone set out more than a year ago: gathering community news and helping publishers save millions of dollars. “We spent the last year investing in our technology and our systems, and that gives up an inherent advantage over anyone trying to do community news,” Timpone says.
