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.
CINCINNATI (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden says investment in infrastructure and job training is needed to increase economic opportunities in the nation's cities.
Biden spoke Thursday at the National Urban League conference in Cincinnati. The conference's theme is "One Nation Underemployed."
Biden said the United States needs to increase its skilled workforce to meet new business needs and to improve roads, bridges and other transportation to spur growth.
Sprinkling his speech with quotes from civil rights leaders, Biden also blasted what he called efforts around the country to repress minority voting.
Earlier, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus assured participants the GOP is making a serious, determined effort to build ties with minority voters.
