Is the economy eliminating competition? They call it an “experiment,” which will run for 3 months. But during that time, McClatchy’s Miami Herald, Tribune’s Sun-Sentinel and Cox’s Palm Beach Post will be swapping stories.
In doing the announcement today, editors of the three papers said they will keep competition alive by limiting the sharing to routine news. Investigative pieces, columns and feature stories won’t be part of the exchange. Their Spanish-language publications – El Nuevo Herald, El Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale and La Palma in West Palm Beach will also participate in the content sharing.
The “experiment” begins on Monday, Labor Day.
