States News Service (SNS) has closed part of its news-gathering operation after learning that some contributors were lifting news items from The Associated Press, the AP reports. The service used 65 to 75 part-time stringers to distribute news to radio and on the Internet. The AP, which notified SNS of the misuse earlier this year, says it is exploring legal action against anyone who misused its reports. SNS will continue its core operation of reporting Washington news to newspapers around the nation.
