Copy Editor Specializes in Associated Press Style

Proofreader Specializes in Associated Press Style

The Associated Press, or AP, is the world's oldest and largest cooperative news organization. As of 2005, AP's news is used by 1,700 newspapers, in addition to 5,000 television and radio outlets. Its photo library consists of over 10 million images. The AP has 242 bureaus and serves 121 countries, with a diverse international staff drawing from all over the world.
The collapse of United Press International, AP's traditional competitor, left it as the only national news service in the U.S. The other rival English-language news services, such as Reuters and the English language service of Agence France Presse, are based outside the United States.
The AP Stylebook is now THE standard for newswriting in the U.S.
If you are an American journalist, it is almost certain that you use AP style. And if you don't use it, you should at least be familiar with it, as should all all copy editors and proofreaders in the industry.
The Associated Press Building in New York City The AP has a straightforward, "just-the-facts" writing style, often using the inverted pyramid style of writing so that stories can be edited to fit a newspaper news-hole without losing the essence of the story. The explosion of media and news outlets with the arrival of the Internet has made such concise writing less necessary, and has raised the need for more feature-style writing. The Internet revolution has also put more pressure on writers to produce more copy under tighter deadlines. Working under tight deadlines often produces many mistakes (e.g., grammar, typos, misspellings, facts), which means that skilled copy editors and proofreaders are more important today than ever.
