Tribune Co. to drop Associated Press


Professor Lou Ureneck, Journalism Department chairman in the College of Communication and former deputy editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, comments on the Tribune Company’s decision to drop AP news service.

“If the Tribune follows through and actually drops the AP, it will hurt the Tribune more than the AP, but it is not a good development for either. This may turn out to be a way for the Tribune to keep its options open and affirm its position as it tries to negotiate a lower rate.”
