CBS News Taps Washington Post’s Dana Priest as Contributor

CBS said Washington Post reporter Dana Priest will become a regular contributor to CBS News, supplying investigative stories to a "variety of newscasts."

Post, who remains a reporter for the paper, collaborated with national security correspondent David Martin on a story last week for the CBS Evening News, and CBS obviously liked what it saw.

Priest won a Pulitzer Prize and other awards for her reporting on secret CIA prisons.
