What They Want

It's sometimes difficult to discern just what institutions like the AP actually want, what wrong Google is actually doing to them. I think the biggest thing is that they're mad that when someone searches for something that they've covered, Google might direct them to, say, some sucky blue blog which has some commentary about the story instead of the story itself. This makes them very mad and they stamp their feet and they want that nasty Google to prioritize their news stories. At least that's what I think they're mad at, until they start bitching about things like Google News which... mostly do just that.

Ok, never mind, I really don't get it.
