CBS News and National Journal have formed a new partnership for multi-platform political coverage. The deal 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’ websites. Political reporters will be named shortly and will begin filing reports and broadcasting from the field in the next few weeks.
“This is a powerful partnership which will produce the strongest coverage of politics in the field,” said David Rhodes, President, CBS News. “With National Journal, we will leverage the work of top CBS News correspondents and provide the most insightful and competitive reporting available.”
