Network plugin for PHP v5.4+ to broadcast posts to other blogs in the network. Custom post types, taxonomies, attachments and WPML are supported.

If you're not into donations, try the support forum to see if other users can help you out.
Broadcasting to specific blogs, hiding blogs and forcing blogs can be acheived with the User & Blog Settings plugin in the Broadcast Premium Pack.
To broadcast many posts at once, see the Send To Many plugin in the Broadcast Premium Pack.
Attachments are force-broadcasted: the child posts have all their attachments deleted and then copied again.
If you have a gallery shortcode in the post ( [gallery columns="2" ids="427,433,430,429,428"] ) then Broadcast will first check that the image does not already exist on the child blog. It does this by searching for the post name (the filename minus the extension). If no image is found, it is copied.
The broadcast meta box, menu and columns in the post view can be hidden from users / roles / blogs using User & Blog Settings plugin in the Broadcast Premium Pack.
Yes, if you expect me to write neat, maintainable, legible code.
If you use v5.3 then use the last plugin that works with that version: v1.18. The download link is on the main page.
If you have already created posts on other blogs that are supposed to be children of a specific post, you can use the "find orphans" function to find and link them.
Find the post in the post overview and use the row action "find orphans". You will then be presented with a table of possible orphans on each blog. Select the blog and then choose "link orphans" to create the links.
To be considered an orphan the orphaned posts must have the exact same title (name) as the soon-to-be parent.
Make sure that:
If you've created a custom post type, but cannot see the "custom fields" checkbox, check your custom post type settings.
Broadcast is capable of handling WooCommerce products.
This will broadcast all normal product settings: SKU, price, etc.
If your products have variations, you'll be wanting the WooCommerce plugin from the premium pack.
There is an included plugin, ThreeWP Broadcast WPML, that provides support for transferring WPML translation data between broadcasted posts.
It works transparently in the background, but in case you've never really used WPML (like myself), here's how I got it working:
2014-01-12 This plugin will soon be replaced by a WPML premium plugin that enables broadcasting from the translation manager. 2014-05-20 This plugin will be removed in the future. 2014-08-14 Still awaiting patches to WPML to be integrated.
Requires: 3.3.1 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.9.2
