Amateur Journalists and Cameramen

I have heard in the past some very swingeing criticisms of Bloggers and other amateur purveyors of news especially from the likes of Andrew Marr of the BBC.  I have in recent days noticed that the media as a whole have used amateur video and digital pictures of the terrible events in Japan and mostly took some days before they actually had their own people on the ground.  I may have failing eyesight but I have also not seen any prominent gestures to the copyright owners of this material.  Surely double standards if not actually plagiarism?
