Commonly abreviated as AP
, the Associated Press is an American news agency run by the media sources that contribute to it. It is the largest news agency in the world and has subscribers (people who pay a fee to use AP's material) in almost every free-market economy nation in the world.
The AP is made up of almost 2,000 American newspapers and about 5,000 TV/radio stations while its photo library has exceeded 10 million pictures of news.
Although the AP tries to remain unbiased some occasional yellow journalism
and personal biases are included in media information.
I couldn't help but notice that almost every article about a national event was writen by the Associated Press in today's newspaper.
