A stolen News article and fake author by Sahara Reporters news media

I have found this story to be disturbing and frankly embarrassing. Why do journalists, writers or bloggers stoop to plagiarism?  See original article published by Kaanayo Nwachukwu on 13th June 2011:  http://newspapersafrica.com/morenews.php?news=business&id=1831, two days before Sahara Reporters publication of 15th June 2011.
Honestly, it would be one thing if the journalist "inadvertently" neglected to give credit to the author, it is quite another that the journalist not only stole the work but then made up a fake author. After the whistle was blown on Sahara Reporter stolen news article, see their correction "Editor's Note: This article was originally credited to one "Mr. Adeleye Anthony", however, Kaanayo Nwachukwu wrote to us claiming the original authorship of the report. We regret the mix up. Story was sent to SaharaReporters by Leye Awodiji who erroneously ascribed Adeleye Anthony as the author."
This is clearly a calculated action. Let's raise the level of professionalism. When did it become okay to steal someone else's work and create a fictitious author? You are a disgrace to writers, editors, authors, and publishers throughout the world. Shame on you Sahara Reporter!
