New York Times, MSNBC Team Up For Special Primary Edition

The New York Times and MSNBC are teaming up to deliver a special series of cable shows hosted by John Harwood and featuring several Times staffers, the first of which premiered today.

Details are vague, but the New York Times memo explaining the program appears below (via New York Observer), as well as the video of Harwood introducing the program. Note how he brands the New York Times "the place for politics in print," an extension of MSNBC's "the place for politics" slogan:

The New York Times Special Primary Edition, a new NYT/MSNBC political program hosted by John Harwood debuts today at 2 p.m. Guests include Adam Nagourney, Pat Healy, Jeff Zeleny, Gail Collins and other Times reporters

This is the first in a series of special programs featuring Times journalists which MSNBC hopes to broadcast throughout the rest of the political season. Segments will also run on
