The New York Times reports that the Associated Press -- the worldwide news service that every formerly mainstream news organization uses -- will distribute stories from four leftist nonprofits in addition to its own liberal reporting:

Starting on July 1, the A.P. will deliver work by the Center for Public Integrity, the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University (cranks out many of the FMSM journalists), the Center for Investigative Reporting, and ProPublica to the 1,500 American newspapers that are A.P. members, which will be free to publish the material.

The A.P. called the arrangement a six-month experiment that could later be broadened to include other investigative nonprofits, and to serve its nonmember clients, which include broadcast and Internet outlets.

Newspapers are still useful for starting bonfires and lining birdcages, ya know.
