Press Association

News wire - and an increasing amount of PR guff - set up as a co-operative owned jointly by UK & IE newspaper propietors. Though as control gets increasingly unbalanced it seems to get more coy about who owns how much.

The information on this page is almost certainly incomplete, but investigating Press Association is a research priority. You are very welcome to send additional information.
