    Cable television news network CNN has attempted to block a video on YouTube.com that shows "tea party" protesters in Chicago confronting the network's reporter Susan Roesgen over her allegedly biased and "not fair" coverage of the event.

    On what grounds? They can't claim copyright infringement without eliminating all of the other CNN videos on YouTube. If they're upset that Roesgen's conduct reflects badly on them, perhaps blocking her from going on the air is a better solution.

    Technically it is their property and they can choose the videos they want to grant public access to and which they don't. They don't really have to state a reason because the copyright infringement rules can be applied on a individual basis. Under the law, I believe, it is up to them to raise the issue and they can either raise it collectively or ala carte.

    I have a hunch she will be terminated soon.

    They can not block that. The incident took place in a public area so the tapeand it's images are the property of whoever shot it.

    That's exactly why I saved a copy as soon as I saw it. I wondered how long it would take before it vanished. What our friends at CNN forget is that once it's in the tubes, it's out there forever.

    CNN needs to take it on the chin... Every network has clips on youtube that are embarrassing--but don't represent the network as a whole.

    But this was a moment of honesty for cnn. They would rather keep their opinions a little more veiled.

    Yes and no. This gets into fair use issues and copyright law. The reason for refusing to allow someone to use a video is that as the copyright holder, you are entitled to either compensation for its use, or because you are seeking to protect your ownership of the video, otherwise it can slip into public domain. Now, CNN allows people to post their videos on a regular basis, so there is no fear of lost ownership. Since CNN does not demand compensation for the other videos posted, it's disingenuous for them to demand that they get paid for this one, or that its posting violates their rights in a way that the other postings do not. Of course, Youtube will probably comply, since they don't want to get into a nasty court fight, and they are simpatico to CNN's ideological, if not legal, position, but it's still rampant hypocrisy.

    How does this not represent CNN as a whole? Does it not reflect founder Ted Turner's contempt for conservatives? Does it not demonstrate an obvious and persistent bias which permeates most of their material? Does it not show one of their reporters embarassing herself in an unscripted moment? These are the staples of CNN coverage, from Peter Arnett allowing himself to give aid and comfort to Saddam's military on Iraqi TV to Eason Jordan slandering US troops from the stage at Davos, this is CNN.
