Advancing the Power of Facts

When the louder we shout, the less we hear, when technology that connects us only seems to pull us apart, and when it's hard to tell news from opinion, let alone real from false, accurate is the most powerful thing we can be.

For over 170 years, the Associated Press has been just that.  Through times of conflict, through cultural upheavels, and through paradigm shifts in media... we have done one thing better than anyone: reporting exactly what happens, as it happens.

That's why more than half the planet gets real news from us, every single day.  And we believe, a world in which more people know what's happening around them... is better eqquiped to face the challenges we share.

The Associated Press

As Mark Twain said in 1906, "There are only two forces that can carry light to all the corners of the globe – only two – the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here." And then he added, "I may seem to be flattering the sun."

Over a century later, AP remains the source for accurate, fair, unbiased news that more than half the world sees every day.
