Press Release as Reporting

Am I naive about how bad things are in newsrooms that someone on Twitter  thinks this is good advice?

"Use an AP Stylebook when writing releases. The less editing a pub has 2 do, the better."

I'm not knocking the Twitterer (I HATE the word Tweet, the way some people hate the word "moist.")  I just wonder how bad things have gotten if her advice is actually valuable.
