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.

NHL Scammer Back in Trouble

CLEVELAND (AP) — An Ohio man who became infamous in the 1990s for his fraudulent attempt to buy the National Hockey League's New York Islanders is scheduled to go on trial Monday outside of Cleveland on theft and forgery charges.

John Spano got nearly six years in federal prison for his Islanders con and just over four years for a second scheme in 2006 that involved a financing company he'd formed.

He now faces one count of theft and 44 counts of forgery in Lake County, about 30 miles east of Cleveland, for allegedly stealing from a company that provides laundry services to health care facilities.

Spano's notoriety has been resurrected in recent years by the release of a documentary called "Big Shot" that chronicles his meteoric rise and fall as the purported owner of the storied hockey franchise.
