The Christian Science Monitor and McClatchy plan to share the costs, staffing and duties of a Baghdad bureau starting next year. McClatchy will also reopen its bureau in Mexico.
From the memo:
"For 2010, McClatchy will have foreign bureaus in Beijing, Cairo, Kabul, Mexico City and in Baghdad, where we'll be sharing staffing and expenses with The Christian Science Monitor. We're still working out the final arrangements, but we and the Monitor will rotate reporters through the Baghdad bureau, and we'll share the costs of housing, local staff, in-country transportation, etc. The main Monitor reporters, whose work you'll be seeing regularly, will be Jane Arraf, whose work you may know from CNN, and Scott Peterson, who happily is also an expert on Iran."
