Here's Brian's ethics post. I'd put this as my first question. What are the ethical implications *for the news organizations*? Is there any ethical concern for them? Brian raises some important legal questions. But is there an ethical dimension?????
Journalism Organizations Protest Big Ten Restrictions on Game Coverage
Yes another sports story but very interesting. They are putting restrictions on what journalists can use, including pictures and video, from college football games. They are severely restricting online journalists and bloggers.
Can these journalists argue based on their first amendment rights? / Do they have a realistic argument for protest?
Why are they being restricted in the first place?
What are the implications if they continue to be restricted?
