I see why local newspaper sites can’t compete with online news organizations.
MSNBC’s “Year in pictures” was amazing. It’s just some audio and pictures strung together, but it’s one of those presentations that grips at the heartstrings.
It’s too bad local newspapers haven’t come up with similar innovative ideas for local coverage. If anyone knows of a local paper that has, please let me know. I’d like to see it.
I found MSNBC’s multimedia presentation originally at Teaching Online Journalism, a blog that was recommended to me last semester by a few of my professors. I have to say I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen so far. Almost makes me wish I’d gone to one of my school’s rivals or one or more of my professors would raise the bar.
