Vice President for International News Ian Phillips and Middle East News Director Karin Laub today announced a key appointment, sending this memo to staff:
The Associated Press has joined two dozen news organizations in urging the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to drop its planned change to how visas for foreign journalists are managed.
AP’s extensive and fact-based coverage of the 2020 presidential election will be as deep as it is broad.
With political reporters based in key states around the country – and reporters on the ground in all 50 U.S. states – AP journalists are taking a hard look at the core issues affecting voters.
With misinformation swirling ahead of the U.S. presidential election, fact-checking, a central function of AP for decades, has never been more important.
