does "giant"mean the Associated Press is the giant media in the media industry? At 12:45 NBC, the champion of news coverage, became the last of the three to reach the public. NBC was relying heavily upon the Associated Press, that bumbling giant, and to make matters worse the network was "down"—there were no national programs at the moment; local stations were in control.

This is not a positive or powerful image. "Bumbling giant" means that it will cause a lot of damage through its careless actions.

A giant, in this context, is something that is very large. It is a large organization.
