"...they should include links to their source material." This is debatable. In theory it should stop lazy people who simply take material wherever they find it and upload it as their own. However, keeping sources private is one of the main qualifications for being a professional journalist.

"Bloggers have an ethic of linking to the journalism they write about. News organizations don’t." Journalists younger than 35 certainly do.

Jeff - thanks for the mention. As a follow-up, we sent emails to AP and Google noting the situation and wondering aloud if a solution is forthcoming. My suggestion - AP should just add an "original source" URL field to their feeds - which Google is now picking up. Google would then simply need to match the 'source' URL with news articles they spider and let the algorithm give some extra points to the originating publication. This was an issue before the AP/Google partnership - just check out for New Hampshire wire stories. Take a guess who has the better Google pagerank and you see the where some of our potential traffic ends up even at the regional level.
