Who Is The AP Meeting With?

The "Media Bloggers Association," who the AP said they would meet with to establish "standards for online use of AP stories by bloggers," doesn't seem to be on the level. Here's what Teresa Nielsen Hayden's digging turned up:

The Media Bloggers Association substantially consists of one lackluster blogger named Robert Cox. His weblog, Words in Edgewise, and the MBA website, are two halves of the same site. Robert Cox isn’t all that interested in blogging per se. What he’s really into is self-aggrandizement by representing himself as someone who speaks for bloggers and blogging. An embarrassing number of organizations have fallen for this.
