Well, we've already joked about how the Associated Press seems to have a bit of a double standard in complaining about the Southeastern Conference's (SEC) restrictions on journalistic activity during SEC sporting events, but it's nice to see the Associated Press and the Gannett chain of newspapers both take a stand and tell the SEC that it simply won't sign the agreement. It's not entirely clear what happens next. The SEC is likely to change the policies and try to come to some sort of compromise, but I'd love to see news organizations get a backbone and tell such sports leagues that there's no compromise and no deal to be had. They're reporters and they'll report as they see fit.
