'Washington Post,' 'Baltimore Sun' Share Content As Editors Depart

The Washington Post and The Baltimore Sun have struck a deal to share articles and photos beginning in January, the newspapers announced Tuesday-- allowing both to expand their coverage, which focuses on Maryland, northern Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The deal also covers national and international reporting distributed by the LAT-WP News Service, to which both newspapers already contribute.
