Guidelines? Hey, AP,Why Not Follow The Law?

Goliath heard that David had a slingshot, an obvious offensive weapon escalation, so he called in all the other bullies on the block to chat with the Media Bloggers Association to iron out their differences with David. Kinda like Hamas talking to Hamas-lite to help out Israel.

The Associated Press, following criticism from bloggers over an AP assertion of copyright, plans to meet this week with a bloggers' group to help form guidelines under which AP news stories could be quoted online.

Why do we need guidelines from AP? Why do we need a Media Bloggers Association that represents about 0% of blogs?

What we have here is failure to communicate. We're doing AP a favor by quoting them at all, even when they're so wrong and biased, and we spell their name right.

Check your bathwater AP. There's a baby in there somewhere. Or is it there's a pony in that pile of horsesh............?

Gore Scheming Comeback?
