Associated Press

Associated Press
   The Associated Press was a cooperative endeavour of six New York City newspapers, begun originally in 1840 to share the expense of sending a reporter to cover the Mexican War. It now gathers and distributes news from 150 cities throughout the world. Its impact in Britain has been both to supply world news to newspapers here and to provide an outlet for the work of many journalists working in Britain. Commentators worry that because news is controlled by three main agencies, Reuters, United Press International (UPI), and Associated Press (AP), (the last two being American) it tends to reflect a US world view. Others say such reporting is inevitable in the global village, and serves as a safeguard against the parochialism of British tabloid journalism.
