AP issues new crediting and attribution guidelines

Associated Press
AP’s rule on attributing facts its reporters haven’t gathered or confirmed on their own is this: “We should provide attribution whether the other organization is a newspaper, website, broadcaster or blog; whether or not it’s U.S. based; and whether or not it’s an AP member or subscriber.” PLUS: More rules.

We have made it easy to comment on posts, however we require civility and encourage full names to that end (first initial, last name is OK). Please read our guidelines here before commenting.
