Next they'll want AP to sell advertising too

John Bowman brings us the latest from the Bay Area News Group at his blog, Spin Ditties.

In this article, it turns out that some editors - including MediaNews bigwig Kevin Keane (Contra Costa Times executive editor and vice president of news for the MediaNews Group-controlled Bay Area News Group, per Bowman) - are unhappy that the AP doesn't offer enough local news content.

That's right. After laying off vast swaths of their local reporting staff, Keane and others are complaining that the AP isn't providing enough local coverage.

This would be funny, if it wasn't so sad.
