A.P. to distribute work from nonprofit groups devoted to investigative journalism

Some for-profit newspapers have reduced the size of their staffs in the face of financial difficulty. In order to fill the gap in investigative reporting, they may soon be relying more heavily on the work of nonprofit organizations devoted to investigative journalism.  As reported in the New York Times, the Associated Press announced that it will distribute work by four such organizations: ProPublica ("journalism in the public interest")  Center for Investigative Reporting ("journalism dedicated to revealing injustice") The Center for Public Integrity ("investigative journalism in the public interest")  The Investigative Reporting Workshop at the American University School of Communication.  (The AP is itself operated as a nonprofit cooperative owned by 1,500 U.S. daily newspaper members, who elect its board of directors.)
