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.

Cueto, Reds shutout Pirates

Cincinnati ace dominates Pittsburgh in 4-0 win

   CINCINNATI (AP) - The two Ohio cities still in contention to host the 2016 Republican National Convention will be visited in late April by party staff or members of a selection committee.
   Teams will visit Cincinnati on April 29 and Cleveland on April 30 for a more in-depth look at factors such as financing, convention venues, media workspace and hotels.
   The visits will help officials decide which of the cities on the short list get visits from the full RNC delegation before the convention site is chosen.
   Republican officials plan to pick the host city this summer, and Las Vegas has emerged as an early leading contender. The other cities in the running are Dallas, Denver and Kansas City, Mo.

Division on Death Penalty Expected

 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court says divisions about the death penalty on a panel that spent more than two years studying capital punishment in the state were to be expected.
   Justice Maureen O'Connor said Tuesday diametrically opposed positions and divisive topics were a healthy part of the panel's work.
   The panel convened in 2011 by O'Connor finalized its recommendations last week and now awaits a dissenting report from prosecutors on the committee who disagreed with some proposals.
   Recommendations include reducing the number of crimes eligible for the death penalty and creating a statewide board that would have the final say over death penalty charges in the state.
   O'Connor says the committee's goal was a fair analysis of Ohio's 3-decade old capital punishment law.

Preserve Pick-Up

   CINCINNATI (AP) - Officials are beginning to focus on restoration as crews clean up remnants of thousands of gallons of oil that leaked into a nature preserve near Cincinnati.
   Traces of oil could be seen on rocks along an intermittent stream in the Oak Glen Nature Preserve as media were allowed to tour the site Monday for the first time since a pipeline leaked in mid-March.
   Federal officials estimated more than 20,000 gallons leaked. The parks agency that owns the preserve estimates that 80 to 90 percent of the oil has been removed from the site.
   Officials say they have not detected negative effects on local air and water quality because of the leak, though it affected some animals. About 31 small creatures have died, and officials say more were contaminated.
