Mathew Ingram points out exactly how much most newspapers get wrong about aggregation sites:
Scott Karp at Publishing 2.0 has a great post about how newspapers can work with aggregators and the distributed ecosystem of the Web, instead of just moaning about how Google and Yahoo are stealing their business, as Tribune owner Sam Zell and others like to do from time to time.
If the people running the news sites spent a few minutes looking at their referer logs, they'd see what Mathew is talking about. I get tons of referrals here from Google; I'm sure that it's an avalanche for the major newspaper sites. If they started dealing with that reality - instead of fighting against it - things might start looking up for them.
