In light of the latest developments regarding President Trump’s recent firing of FBI Director James Comey, the Associated Press decided to feature the photographers from the Washington Post’s front page, alongside a number of others who had not yet been featured.
Among the photographs that have been included are two images of former President Barack Obama and two of President Donald Trump.
The White House announced that it was ending its relationship with The Post after the former president took the oath of office in January.
In response to Trump’s firing of Comey, The Post said it will begin to publish the photographs it acquired as part of its partnership with the Associated States News Agency (ASA) in 2017.
The decision to feature photographers who have not yet taken part in a photojournalism project comes after the publication of an article published by The New York Times in which they reported that the president had asked them to help write his biography.
The Associated Press previously published a list of photographs taken by photographers from different outlets and also included the images from the Times article, but did not include those who were not yet featured on the front page of the AP’s website.
In an email to The Huffington Post, a spokesperson for The Associated Press said, “The Associated States news agency is not an official publication of the U.S. government.
However, as an independent news organization, the AP will be publishing the photographs we acquired from its photographers in its upcoming front pages.”
