why Sauti? as in why does "The news ecosystem needs the traditional players such as the "old-fashioned" news agencies. "

The news agencies ushered in an era of greater news gathering founded on new technology (telegraph wires) but also of a standardised and a one-size-fits-all approach. More new technology is ushering in a greater plurality of news gathering and publication, the old approach may not hold and the old agencies may not hav ehte will or means to re-invent themselves in time

This is worrying news. My concern is not so much for CNN's output, but that it will weaken the AP.

The AP has a deserved high reputation for international news coverage. Losing such a major client as CNN might encourage others to drop their AP subscription. It becomes a vicious circle - less funding for the AP means a poorer service, hence other customers may depart, etc.

The news ecosystem needs the traditional players such as the "old-fashioned" news agencies. Weakening them or driving them to extinction is not good for news biodiversity.
