[creative-radio] A.P. in Deal to Deliver Nonprofits’ Journalism



Starting on July 1, the A.P. will deliver work by the Center for Public
Integrity, the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University,
the Center for Investigative Reporting, and ProPublica to the 1,500
American newspapers that are A.P. members, which will be free to publish
the material.

The A.P. called the arrangement a six-month experiment that could
later be broadened to include other investigative nonprofits, and to
serve its nonmember clients, which include broadcast and Internet
outlets.

"It's something we've talked about for a long time, since part of our
mission is to enable our members to share material with each other," said
Sue Cross, a senior vice president of The A.P. She said the development in
2006 of an Internet-based system for members to receive A.P. material made
it easier to do that kind of sharing, and to offer new products like the
investigative service.

As they sharply reduce their staffs, many newspapers have cut back on
investigations or given them up entirely. When there are barely enough
reporters to cover the daily news from the local courthouse and the school
board, it is harder to justify assigning someone to an in-depth project
that might take weeks or months.

At the same time, independent groups doing investigative journalism have
grown in number and size, fueled by foundations and wealthy patrons, and
are offering their work to newspapers, magazines, television and radio
news programs, and news Web sites. ProPublica was created in 2007 and the
Investigative Reporting Workshop in 2008. The Center for Investigative
Reporting has operated for more than three decades, and is doubling in
size. The four groups combined have more than 50 professional
journalists...."
