Many newspapers print the same stories because they have syndication agreements with the news agencies
Actually, many dont. Most operate totally independantly eg: Express, BBC, Telegraph, the Regionals etc and have their own jounalists who source stories sent to them directly by way of 'Send Us your story' forms via their websites.
so they dont need such relationships. I know this bcos I send in stories myself.
Also, the way the media works is by Journalists reading each other's stories and this is how the main stories are spread about between news sources.
