Doing it Their Way

As I was reading Philebrity (one of my favorite blogs) today, I came across something that really surprised me. Philebrity posted that Metro, an international chain of newspapers, will no longer be using content from the AP as of April 1.

We have been talking about many publications becoming more reliant on the AP and other services for content, because of the decreasing number of staff members. I thought that it was a very bold move for Metro to move away from the AP, and so did other Philebrity readers.

What do you think this means for the future of Metro? More local stories? Decreases in readership? Let us know!
