Writing news releases in journalistic (Associated Press) style reduces the need for changes by the news media and makes it more likely that the news releases will be published.
Periodicals may publish a release with little change, cut it to one paragraph, or expand it to a longer story. They may edit it into a different style or even rewrite it entirely. Some may publish it immediately, while others use it weeks or months later or file it as background and contact the source years later. In any case, the News Bureau cannot, and should not, control what the news media do with a release.
