A day after the NY Times reported CBS News was talking with CNN about outsourcing reporting… CBS News denies the report.
“We’re extremely satisfied with and proud of our news-gathering operation,” CBS News spokeswoman Sandy Genelius said when asked about the Times report. “No outside arrangements are being negotiated.”
And we’ll see what tomorrow brings… Maybe another Tupac Shakur exclusive from the LA Times.
NY Times is reporting tonight that CBS may outsource some of its reporting to CNN.
This is a big deal. And an indication where media is going. All media are facing cutbacks as people find their information in a wide variety of places – not just newspapers, TV and radio anymore.
As a result operations like CBS will make cuts or business decisions that make sense.
No deal is imminent, but it’s something to keep an eye on.
