    If newspapers don’t have an alternative, readers do. It’s called the Internet. That’s why newspapers, if they don’t want to be dragged further into irrelevance and disrepute, have to tell The Associated Press they are dissatisfied with its product.

    Here here. Not an Iraq war fan myself, but that's beside the point this guy is making. I'm often pretty surprised at the naked liberal bias of an AP dispatch, which, as he notes, used to be incredibly staightforward and factual. In any event, the new (un)associated press is the worldwide army of Davids Glenn Reynolds talks about.

    Was there another MSM writer that came out about AP? This was the first I've seen.

    I know it's been on blogs, I too have been posting on this over a week. Are you saying FOX or some other conservative news channel has reported?

    The list of 'new media' embeds keeps growing, while the MSM reporters mostly hang out in the green zone:
