WaPo, Venture Beat Hook Up on the Web

washington post venturebeat partnership

Tech blog VentureBeat has entered into a “content sharing partnership” with newspaper and news site the Washington Post, both companies have announced.

VentureBeat wrote up a post on the new pairing, and says that a selection of VentureBeat’s daily offerings will appear on the Washington Post‘s technology page. The tech blog indicates that the day-to-day posts aggregated to the Washington Post will be ”selected by the Post’s editorial staff from among the many articles published each day on VentureBeat.”

In their post, VentureBeat says:

We’re proud of this partnership and see it as a validation of the commitment to aggressive reporting and responsible journalism that is VentureBeat’s hallmark. Rather than just republishing press releases with a thin layer of snarky humor, we’re looking to uncover the real stories behind the news.

VentureBeat’s goal, as always, is to bring you valuable intelligence about what’s going on in technology and business. We talk to sources, check facts and provide context. It’s a formula that’s working very well for us, as our traffic is surging and an increasing number of industry leaders are turning to us for the real story.

VentureBeat joins Slate and Bloomberg Business in contributing to the site’s tech page.
