CNET News.com, now part of CBS, and CBS News are collaborating on the coverage of the Democratic and Republican national conventions. Three News.com staffers, Declan McCullagh, Stephanie Condon, and Kara Tsuboi, will be covering, writes News.com editor Dan Farber today.
He says the reporters "will be on the scene, covering the tech policies and positions of the
presidential and vice presidential candidates. In addition, they will
be roaming the convention floors, interviewing delegates, politicians,
and pundits on tech-related issues such as Net neutrality, Internet
taxation, and privacy."
Each night during the convention, Katie Couric will host a live Webcast from 10-11 Eastern. The show is being co-produced by CBS News and CNET and will stream on both sites. Above is a promotional video from CBS.
