Q. How do I cite press releases in APA format?

I could not find an answer in the APA manual. The URL for the news release is: http://www.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=2381


Here are two examples on how you would cite a press release in APA format.

American Psychological Association. (2010). Today's superheroes send wrong image to boys, say researchers [Press release]. Retrieved from http://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2010/08/macho-stereotype-unhealthy.aspx

 The White House, Office of the Press Secretary. (2010). Administration officials continue travel across the country holding "Recovery Summer" events, project site visits [Press release]. Retrieved from http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/administration-officials-continue-travel-across-country-holding-recovery-summer-eve
