Reuters, AP Refuse To Cover Cricket Matches Over Restrictive Press Accreditation Rules

Apparently, they only do that on sports that don't get as much attention (in the US, at least).
Last year, we wrote how the press was planning to boycott various cricket matches over similar attempts to limit reporting. And, once again, major news organizations like Reuters are proudly announcing that they will not be covering certain cricket matches due to the press policies. The Associated Press has announced similar plans, and says that the AFP is also refusing to cover the matches. At what point do these sports leagues realize that they're better off with press coverage than without?
