RIAA still insisting reporters don't get it

Anonymous Reader writes "MP3 Newswire has posted The RIAA's open letter demanding an appology for an article that appeared in Billboard titled "RIAA Criticized Over Effort to Change Anti-Terrorism Bill."" One of RIAA's complaints is that the Billboard reporter didn't actually talk to RIAA as the reason for the story's inaccuracy. The letter doesn't explain how Wired News reporter Brad King, who broke the story last week and actually spoke with a RIAA rep for the better part of an hour before writing his piece, managed to reach the same conclusions as Billboard's scribe.
