CBS hooks up with the Brits.

The American news organization has announced a partnership for both editorial and newsgathering with the British Broadcasting Corporation. The arrangement begins right away, with basic content sharing; additional aspects will be layered in over the next few months. According to David Rhodes, president of CBS News, “CBS News is completely committed to original reporting around the world—a commitment clearly shared by the BBC. There’s no better partner to strengthen and extend our global coverage than BBC News.”
