    Shut down those non-MSM outlets, blogs.

    Pajamas Media » The Associated Press Declares War on the Online World

    In other words, accept the MSM take on all issues or stfu!

    All that will happen is people will rewrite the articles and they will get nothing except bad publicity.

    The newspaper industry is dying.

    Let the AP boycott the internet, who gives a shit. It will lead to more independent freelancers and better coverage.

    what a silly thing to say... why would you be one of those who makes up things about what others say... don't we have enough to disagree about without you making up junk out of whole cloth? :cuckoo:

    i don't care that there are blogs out there... but they sure as heck aren't evidence of anything.

    Sorry if that offends you and at the risk of upsetting you ...

    tough.

    I cannot blame AP for expecting to get paid when their reporatage is reported online by other media outlets.

    After all, it is they who paid to gather the news, so why shouldn't they expect compensation from other media outlets using their reports?

    They already get that. They want to take it further.

    Put it this way, if you post a link to their story here on this message board, they want to get paid for you posting that link here. Even if no one clicks the link which takes them to the site where they do get paid.

    From the story:

    Absolutely impossible to effectively police, and will only result in bullshit lawsuits against small time bloggers and MB's.

    AP is aiming to become the new RIAA
