apple doesn't think that online news sites are "legitimate"

I was reading this article and one quote really stuck out for me:

  In its court filings, Apple argued that neither the free speech protections of 
  the United States Constitution nor the California Shield Law, which protects 
  journalists from revealing their sources, applies to the Web sites. The 
  company said such protections apply only to "legitimate members of the press."

So what they're saying here, is that APPLE, the company that so many people loove
to love so much, doesn't think web-only news sites are legitimate journalism. 
Way to embrace the internet, Apple. I can understand that you're miffed that
some of your employees leaked info, but don't go trying to set some terrible
precedent just because of that.
