The Associated Press ignorant of technology

If you don't want to pay attention to this story, don't. However, the Associated Press - the overlords of all things daily newspaper content - have slit their throats just a bit further.

Earlier this week, the Associated Press sent a cease and desist order to a Tennessee radio station, an Associated Press member, for embedding AP videos on their website. (Even worse, the AP didn't even know they had a YouTube channel)

The radio station's argument is very clear and they are in the right. If the AP is so stuck in the stone-age that they don't want their videos spread across the web and can't figure out how to disable the embed code on YouTube, maybe this archaic organization has met its endpoint.
