The news agencies

Our local reporter may well string for Press Association (PA), an organisation owned collectively by the country’s provincial newspapers (daily, evening and Sunday papers lacking a nationwide readership). The PA has a private telegraph service to almost every morning and evening paper in Britain, and the wires are busy all day and much of the night carrying news about Britain to every part of Britain. If a local reporter witnesses the launching of a new tanker on Clydeside, or notices a mayor sitting on his ceremonial hat at a dignified function in Wiltshire, then the PA will see that every other newsroom in Britain is acquainted with the fact in no time at all. The PA also carries a selection of foreign news to those newspapers not taking the services of the international news agencies direct.
