I need news on my website. I was wondering, is it okay if I were to use news, from news sources such as AP etc. etc., as long as i put the copyrights on my site at the end of the article?  
 
 
thank you

You are using legal terms in a non standard way, but I interpret your question to be whether you can avoid copyright infringement by crediting the source of your copying.
 
The answer to that question is no.   In fact, while you will address the issue of plagiarism by providing a proper cite, that citation is also is also evidence that you did in fact copy knowingly.
 
Also copying fresh news items presents other legal concerns besides copyright infringement.
