Australian Associated Press was founded in 1935 "as a cooperative news gathering organisation for the mutual benefit of its 14 newspaper members."[1]

On its website AAP states that its mission statement is "to provide the Australian media, private and public sector with a cost-effective, unbiased, reliable, comprehensive news and information resource." It also states that "the principles upon which AAP was founded over 70 years ago - impartiality, independence accuracy, reliability and speed - remain at its heart today. It still brings the world to Australians but now also takes the story of Australia to the world."[1]
