But the reality is still that the state wires have been AP’s cash cow, and they are hurting. In South Carolina, for instance, the AP office – no longer a bureau – is unstaffed many more hours, including much of the weekend, and because of my former AP life, I’ve gotten an earful on that from editors I talk with around the state. And the output of staff-generated copy is thinning.

The Ohio experiment isn’t perfect. This comment is on the Nieman post:
It’s a good idea, though disappointing that the Ohio 8 have not allowed smaller papers into the group.

Read the whole sobering story at Common Sense Journalist on the state of the Associated Press.

But as the writer notes, his 9,000-circulation daily dropped AP about three weeks ago and have not received a single call about it…we are obtaining agate from PA Sportsticker.
