Years ago when I was a captain soon to leave the Army, I wanted a job with Associated Press in West Virginia (where I was living at the time) but they turned me down for not enough daily reporting experience. I had only worked for weeklies before being drafted in 1967.
At the same time United Press International offered me a job. But I had to relocate to Pittsburgh. So I took a Charleston, WV TV reporting job instead and eventually got into daily newspapers. Always have wondered what the UPI job might have been like. Not to mention Pittsburgh. UPI apparently still strives for objectivity. While AP has joined the Fake News in harassing Trump.
