Shrinking newspapers have also shrunk their investigative journalism. Non-profits have started doing their own in-depth investigative reporting. So now… the Associated Press will deliver their work across the country.
The AP announced over the weekend that it will distribute the work of 4 journalism non-profits. Work from the Center for Public Integrity, the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University, the Center for Investigative Reporting, and ProPublica will be available to the AP’s 1,500 member newspapers for free publication.
The deal is a 6 month experiment that could include other investigative non-profits in the future.
