CBS NEWS AND NATIONAL JOURNAL FORM A NEW PARTNERSHIP FOR THEIR MULTI-PLATFORM POLITICAL COVERAGE

CBS News and National Journal have formed a new partnership for multi-platform political coverage, it was announced today by David Rhodes, President, CBS News, and Ron Fournier, editor-in-chief of National Journal. The partnership establishes a joint team of political reporters to follow presidential candidates throughout the 2012 election season.

The new team will report for CBS News, cbsnews.com, and nationaljournal.com, providing coverage from the field with online dispatches, video and social media updates. Reports will appear on both organizations’ Web sites.
