WebWire: Nobody (including Google) is saying that PR Newswire or AP can't deliver press releases with "dofollow" links to news outlets.
BUT: If they're going to slap those releases up on the Web and they want free traffic for their clients, they should respect Google's guidelines. (That's just common sense)
AND: If they're anticipating that news outlets will republish unedited press releases, they should be making it easy for news outlets to observe Google's guidelines. (That's just common sense--and common courtesy.)
