Big Media joins fight against Apple's Constitution-trampling

I guess finally realizing what the long-term effects of Apple's recent lawsuit against rumorbloggers might be, such large media organizations as the Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times recently filed a brief in a federal appeals court, arguing that the put-upon bloggers had every right to publish the reports they did, even if the information in the reports were illegally obtained. Between this and the growing amount of papers offering citizen-journalist blogs at their sites, maybe the journalism industry really is waking up and finally noticing all the changes going on around them. (Thanks to Threadwatch for pointing this out.)
