- Mark Twain once proclaimed, 'There are only two forces that can carry light to all corners of the globe - the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here.' Mahatma Gandhi joked, 'I suppose when I go to the Hereafter and stand at the Golden Gate, the first person I shall meet will be a correspondent of the Associated Press.' As Twain's and Gandhi's comments attest, during the 19th and 20th centuries, the Associated Press was one of the world's leading news gathering forces. Founded soon after the invention of the telegraph, the AP was organized as a collective of newspapers that agreed to share their content. This case study discusses this topic.
