I was emailed by Simon Owens of Bloggasm, with some more information on the AP's attempt to smack down the Drudge Retort. The piece is pretty clear. While I have rarely used AP stories, I think I shall join the general boycott against them. Since a link provides an opportunity for more readers to see for themselves what an article says, the AP is only hurting themselves with this.
Fine by me.
Thanks for the link, Simon. I do hope I don't get sued.
