A women's group is actively campaigning to change the fact that Augusta National Golf Club, where the Masters golf tournament is held every year, does not have any female members. Here's the latest article. When I watched a portion of CNN Headline News this evening, CNN said that Augusta had a "ban" on women members, while mentioning CBS was still planning on broadcasting the Masters next year.

This is the first time I have heard the world "ban" with this story. A ban typically infers an active or official policy. Not having any females does not necessarily constitute a "ban" on female members. This certainly sounded like biased editorializing while reporting the news. I encourage my readers to send me their opinion of this.
