Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Gordon Explains Latest Violation

  CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns receiver Josh Gordon says his latest trouble with the NFL results from having a few drinks with teammates.
   Gordon said in an open letter on Medium on Thursday that he accepts responsibility for a failed alcohol test that could bring another suspension from the league. The 23-year-old receiver said he had two beers and two other drinks with teammates on a flight to Las Vegas on Jan. 2, after Cleveland's season ended.
   The former Pro Bowler was suspended for last season after testing positive for marijuana, but the penalty was reduced to 10 games. Gordon said that as part of the reduction, he agreed not to drink alcohol. He said he was tested for it when he got off the plane in Las Vegas.
   Gordon says he thought the agreement to not drink ended after the Browns' regular season but he should have confirmed it.

Bearcats Thrash Huskies

  CINCINNATI (AP) - Point guard Troy Caupain scored a career-high 20 points on Thursday night before leaving with his second technical foul, and Cincinnati never trailed during a 70-58 victory over sloppy Connecticut to split the season series.
   Cincinnati (15-5, 6-2 American Athletic) won its third in a row overall and improved to 12-1 at home this season.
   Caupain wiggled free for layups and made eight of his nine shots. He picked up his second technical for taunting with 2:24 to go and Cincinnati up by 14 points.
   UConn (11-8, 4-3) won the teams' first matchup in Connecticut on Jan. 10, with Ryan Boatright scoring 18 points in a 67-60 victory. The conference's stingiest defense clamped down on him in the rematch and held him without a field goal until there was 12:56 left in the game.
   UConn turned it over 17 times and shot only 33 percent from the field overall.
