    that they had to let scads of reporters go.  If that's the case, why is a BLOG such a big deal to them, and how could they possibly spare anyone to cover this stuff?

    I'm amazed they have staff that has time to cover this - no wonder they've been so poor at reporting real insightful news about the elections, the wars in Georgia, Iraq, Afghanistan, the situation in Pakistan, the housing crisis, the oil you know - things an informed public should be getting informed about!

    What the heck are they doing trying to discredit a blog site?

    We'd all just go to another site and start typing again's an information insurgency and at least our agenda is trying to get the truth out.

      the AP has had to let so many people go that all that's left is some guy with an AOL account on dial-up.

      And he's REALLY mad at us.

      Oh, and Fournier? He's not real -- it's just a hologram.

      Of a sockpuppet.

      And we cornered them.

      And we can keep doing it.

      They chewed up droogie and they might chew up more.

      But they made a hell of a mistake in such petty vindictiveness: they eschewed responsibility about the charges leveled to turn to dirty tricks.

      They could merely have posted the facts to droogie's diary and got an immediate response, and accomplished the simple goal of correction of the record. But the hard facts doesn't seems to be what they're after. They want backdoor attacks and back stabbing.

      They want a flame war. So, fuck 'em. They got it.

      they run the risk of having the cream of their workforce abandon ship, too, just in case they're next.

      It seems expensive to send a seasoned journalist overseas to report on yet another war.  But it doesn't take a seasoned journalist to take jabs at a blog site.  All it takes is a college intern.

      The AP are a bunch of dicks.
