    think this is such a heinous crime.  Everybody gets entertainment lists from the ap and they just read it on the air.  It's like your local music station going through a list of clubs and who's playing there that evening.  Then they move on to the non-scripted stuff.

    In other words - I have no doubt that news agencies are sometimes given instructions (talking points) from questionable sources.  I just don't think this is proof that this one does.

    At one time, everyone just waited for the AP story and then quoted it.  Over time, the AP lost it's credibility and alot of that has stopped.

    A man abstemious, rigidly upright, inflexibly honest, ferociously chaste. A man with every virtue, except humility and human kindness. - Ellis Peters
