The Wall Street Journal Online at WSJ.com and ConsumerReports.org, both paid subscription sites, have announced an agreement to integrate selected, consumer-focused content into each other's subscription site.

ConsumerReports.org's independent, expert "Ratings and Recommendations" will now be supplemented by a daily offering of the Online Journal's news and features of interest to consumers. ConsumerReports.org editors will choose and update the selection of Online Journal articles for its subscribers. The selections will include consumer-focused breaking news and coverage, on topics ranging from air travel to automotive innovations to personal technology.

Online Journal editors will enhance WSJ.com's news coverage with relevant information from Consumer Reports including buying advice, product reviews and other Consumer Reports articles. In addition, there will be notices within the print edition of The Wall Street Journal noting the availability of Consumer Reports reviews and information at WSJ.com.
