Relax, Bloggers. The AP Isn’t Out to Get You

The level of nervous blogging and twittering following the New York Times article , including Jeff Jarvis' How (and why) to replace the AP , has been pretty extreme. I was reassured to see Ryan Chittum's post in the CJR , which he wrote after actually going to the source... the AP. Now, I'm sure there are those in the blogosphere about to accuse the AP of spinning and damage control, but I'm tempted to take to heart this quote from a Senior VP of product development at the AP:

“Are we going to worry about individuals using our stories here and there? That isn’t our intent. That’s being fueled by people who want to make us look silly. But we’re not silly.”
