We’re turning the spotlight on three news sources in Publish2 News Exchange. These are online-only news organizations distributing their stories for newspapers to run in print — free in exchange for attribution.
First, Politics Daily:
Here’s what Melinda Henneberger, Editor-in-Chief, says about Politics Daily’s reporting style:
“What PoliticsDaily.com offers is effectively counter-programming; instead of attempting to dominate the 10-second news cycle, our goal is to offer a thoughtful take on events. We value writing at a moment when the conventional wisdom says that nothing could matter less.”
And here are a few examples of Politics Daily stories in News Exchange today that any newspaper could run in print tomorrow:
Obama, Jan Brewer Talk Immigration, Promise Cooperation
White House correspondent Alex Wagner covers President Obama’s meeting with the Governor of Arizona.
Louisiana Congressman Launches Petition to Fire BP CEO Tony Hayward
Patricia Murphy’s story covers Charlie Melancon’s online petition and the response to it so far.

Bruce Drake covers the latest polls in Nevada’s election races.
