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.

QB wins second championship amid retirement rumors

 

NEW YORK (AP) - For the second year in a row, an NFL-sponsored Super Bowl ad has focused on ending domestic violence. The NFL donated airtime for the spot from No More, an advocacy group that works to combat domestic violence and sexual assault.

The ad's timing may raise eyebrows. On Friday, Dallas police said they're launching a criminal investigation into a domestic-violence assault complaint filed against Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. The NFL said it has reached out to Manziel's family offering help.

Last year's ad followed the NFL's suspension (later overturned) of running back Ray Rice for punching his then-fiance in a casino elevator. That ad featured a woman pretending to order a pizza while calling the police with her attacker still in the house.

   NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA is reviewing whether the act of jumping on a player's back to intentionally foul him should be interpreted as a flagrant foul.
 
   Dwight Howard and Andre Drummond have both been subjected to the act, when a player jumped on their backs to send the poor free throw shooters to the line. They are frequently fouled intentionally away from the ball, along with the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, because they are among the league's worst free throw shooters.
 
   Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters Sunday that a memo from the NBA said that act would now be ruled as a flagrant 1 foul. But a league spokesman says there has been no rule change, only that league officials are discussing how the play should be interpreted.
 
   If it became a flagrant 1, the team that was fouled would keep possession after the two free throws.
