NBC News is joining with campaign-watchdog group the Center for Responsive Politics to track campaign-finance issues.
The two organizations will collaborate to produce reports on political fund-raising and campaign spending, with NBC getting to showcase the data on Today
, NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw
, MSNBC, MSNBC.com (www.msnbc.com/news
) and NBC's daily electronic-mail service.
The deal takes effect immediately and goes through the 2004 election. NBC will get on-demand research and a "priority" look at CRP's database.
