CNN, Internet Broadcasting to share online news

CNN and Internet Broadcasting Systems announced Tuesday that they have formed a strategic partnership to share online news content.

Through the deal, CNN will have access to content from Internet Broadcasting, a publisher of online local news that runs network TV station Web sites for broadcasters such as Hearst-Argyle Television, NBC, Cox Television and Post-Newsweek Stations. The CNN Web site will contain local news from Internet Broadcasting on its front page as well as in its U.S. news and weather sections.

Additionally, Internet Broadcasting sites will begin to stock national, international and political content from CNN. Ad placements from CNN.com will also become part of Internet Broadcasting's marketing packages.

The opportunity for locally placed advertisements will likely be a valuable asset for CNN, since niche advertisers are profitable and largely untapped resources. Google, for example, has had success with Google Maps-based image advertisements in its Local Search feature.

CNN, a division of Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting System, will also acquire an equity stake in Internet Broadcasting. The Minneapolis, Minn.-based company's investors are Hearst-Argyle Television, Post-Newsweek Stations, McGraw-Hill Broadcasting and Split Rock Partners.

hybrid toyota prius
this mornings program, Robin had a woman named Jerri pass on
to the public some very very incorrect information regarding the
toyota prius. I am an owner of a toyota prius and I get 50/54
miles to the gallon driving in the Roaring Fork Valley here in
Colorado. When I travel to Denver going thru two major passes
at 13,000 ft. my speed limit 65/75, I got 45/50 mpg. Now, if
you have a lead foot you may get less than average. Jerri needs
to get her facts straight before she starts reporting false
information to the public. I have a computer in my car that can
prove my information. Where did she get her facts. And she also
failed to mention the purpose in a hybrid vehicle is not only
energy conservation but emissions. Hybrids don't run off of
fossil fuel at stop signs, they run off the battery. Poor reporting.

i can't believe so many americans second guess president obama's preidency. Clearly obama is thniking out side the box. Clearly thinking close mindedly is not working.
any american wishing obmam will fail can't truely be an american or nour should they be in politics.
the world econcmy will never be the same. if if does go back the same, then not enough people have learned, we can not keep living beyond our mean's.
i also listen to some americans wanting immigration stopped. do people understand that they are all immigrants. There is only a very small number of people in north america who are native americans. If people all across the world do not learn to live and work together, there will not be a world as we know it, we all must start thinking outside the box.
i am a 50 year old white canadian male and living 20 minutes between peggy's cove and halifax, Nova Scotia. i have been living with multiple sclerosis for 12 years and i just lost one of my 45 year old sister to breast cancer on jan/26/09.
i still have hope for the human race, do you? will we get it in time? try giving obama and people like him a CHANCE.


thanks for reading
