Former top editors from the Chicago Tribune and other journalists have formed a nonprofit news organization - the Chicago News Cooperative. The new venture will provide two pages of local news twice a week for the Chicago edition of the New York Times, which will pay for the service. The MacArthur Foundation and a local public television station have provided start-up funding for the cooperative. The story now appears as "breaking news." More in-depth coverage will likely be available tomorrow.
