The AP tollbooth

The AP keeps getting sillier:
AP sets up a toll booth for bloggers citing its stories:
The pricing scale for excerpting AP content begins at $12.50 for 5-25 words and goes as high as $100 for 251 words and up. Nonprofit organizations and educational institutions enjoy a discounted rate.
Jim Lynch calls it A la carte pricing.

At the same time, AP has no problem quoting Patterico. His check from AP is in the mail, of course?

Michelle has a hilarious string going where everyone is tallying up how much the AP owes THEM for lifting THEIR words without citation or linky-love or even a smile and a polite thank you.


Slam bam thank you ma'am.
