The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun will begin sharing some of their articles and pictures, the papers announced Tuesday. The move adds two big newspapers to a list of publishers looking to find more content as news staffs are cut back. The papers will now be able to use each other’s national and international work and have divided their coverage of local and sports news. "This allows both newspapers to really use their resources to pursue stories that are unique to them, to play to their own strengths," J. Montgomery Cook, who will become the editor of The Sun next week, told the New York Times. "Budgets are tight everywhere, and it helps us to put our resources where we can use them best, and avoid duplication."
