The most ironic angle to surface so far in the AP vs Drudge Retort copyright/fair use flap is the suggestion of an ethical lapse in the New York Times’ coverage of the tempest by failing to disclose it is among the “owners” of the news service.
Which leads me to a question: Who forgot newspaper media companies were the owners of the Associated Press first? The AP or the newspapers? Oh, well, that’s a thought for another day.
The Knoxville News Sentinel’s very own Michael Silence weighs in on AP v Drudge Retort with interviewer Ed Driscoll on Pajamas Media’s 6 p.m. Thursday “PMJ Political” radio show on XM Channel #130. They also archive them.
