Anti-Social Media: Plagiarism victim Rey Joble quits

This just in: Rey Joble, whose article on GMA News Online was plagiarized by author Krip Yuson for a magazine article, has left the company.

Joble said goodbye on his Facebook account today:

After more than a year of writing/editing stories for the sports section of GMA News, the author is bidding goodbye to his readers/followers. Thanks so much for making me and the sports section of GMA News a part of your reading interest. Thanks so much as well to GMA News for the opportunity.

Yuson was let go soon after the plagiarism issue spread on social networking sites.

    Our field correspondent Lou Cheng is doing a story on this issue though. It’s very interesting, actually.
