AP Wire Service

“AP” Abbreviation of Associated Press: Link

American multinational nonprofit news agency headquartered in New York City

Wire Service
noun

A news agency that sends out syndicated news copy to subscribers by wire or by satellite transmission

I encountered this word from our post on OpenLab (Link: Here). From our learning, I learned that AP stands for Associated Press; an organization. However, I decided to add on service at the end of the “Wire” because if someone who hadn’t taken our class to read this site, they would not understand. I did not thought at first that it was two words that describes one thing. So, I searched AP and than Wire. Each words have different meaning that made me very confusing about this organization name.
