Speed is the #1 priority at AP. Getting the information and content out to
its media clients so they can get on the air with it as fast as possible.
Most of their clients are TV and radio broadcasters, with web nipping at
their heels and print media left way behind in the dust, and taking 10
minutes to edit and correct a news item could make the difference between
the client being first on the air in its market or getting scooped by its
competition, so editing and even spell checking is not a priority compared
with fact checking. Most of the clients will rewrite or revise the
unedited content to fit it into their formats anyway. So its Yahoo that is
skimping on the edits.
