The pact kicks off with a story in the Feb. 7 issue of Newsweek about the shortfalls of digital mammography, and Newsweek and The Daily Beast will pay the Center for Public Integrity for exclusive stories going forward, marking the latter’s first pay-for-content deal in more than 20 years.
CPI executive editor John Solomon said:
Tina Brown and her team are putting the news back in Newsweek. We are excited to contribute some of our deep, exclusive investigative reporting to the effort.
Newsweek and The Daily Beast editor-in-chief Brown added:
We have great admiration for John and his team at the Center for Public Integrity and are pleased to be working with them both at The Beast and Newsweek.
