The Center for Public Integrity, one of the largest nonprofit investigative news organizations, has entered into an agreement providing exclusive content to Newsweek and The Daily Beast. The magazine's Feb. 7 issue includes a feature on the shortfalls in digital mammography. The piece reports that experts doubt the high-tech devices can detect breast cancer in women older than 65 any better that old-fashioned film machines. Yet Medicare continues to pay a premium for millions of the questionable digital mammograms. Under the agreement, Newsweek/Daily Beast will pay the Center for exclusive stories moving forward. It marks the Center's first pay-for-content deal in more than two decades.
