CNN: A newspaper wire service?
By Angela Connor
Move over AP, there’s a new game in town.
I just read on Lost Remote that CNN is courting newspapers with a new wire service it plans to launch soon. We all know that many, if not most, newspapers are fed up with AP so this could actually come to pass. Editor & Publisher reports that editors are being invited to a three-day event in Atlanta at CNN’s expense that will showcase CNN’s expertise in covering news, highlight on-air and online coverage, demonstrate the latest in news gathering technology, and explain how the CNN Wire can become a valuable resource for your newspapers and websites.
This should be interesting.
