    Another great example of how to fly UAVs for profit. (USA Today in this case)

    It says "Courtesy of", meaning, it's free! No TV would pay for this they don't care!

    Lol. See this half way down the USA Today page? That's an ad. That's how USA Today makes money off this guy's free clip.

    Yep. But it does provide motive for media to monotize "drone" videos by sensationalizing them or headlining them with links. It's a way around the FAA "not for profit" rule for them, and someone else takes the risk with no reward.
