I've been noticing that a number of sports articles on the DetNews and Free Press websites are posted without any author information. I find this to be a rather strange practice. I thought the whole point of attaching your name to an article was to take credit for your work, stand by it, and add it to your publication list. Even guest authors usually attach their name to their prose.
But for some reason, stuff like this...
...ends up being written anonymously.
Could someone enlighten me on why news agencies do this? I can understand if there are multiple contributing authors that are too many to list, but for a small recruiting article based on information that can be found via a quick google search, why not list your name and take credit for your work?
