CBS scouts CNN digs

CBS News executives were in Atlanta Wednesday sizing up CNN's headquarters.

A CNN spokesman confirmed a report of the visit and said it was part of the ongoing talks between the two sides, but did not know if ABC execs would make a similar visit.

Insiders say the meetings, which reportedly included Marcy McGinnis, CBS vice president for news coverage, and Bill Felling, CBS news national editor, were not high-level negotiating meeting, but more of a scouting tour. - Allison Romano
