MediaShift’s roundup on the Future of Journalism

“I’m not convinced that video and audio…’multimedia’…are going to be newspapers’ salvation. They’re fine to have, as supplements to written stories with good graphics, powerful photos and useful database information. But video and audio take real time…five minutes of video is five minutes…and people can scan text so much faster. We’ll always want to see the spectacular video or some special moment captured in sound. But if that would save newspapers online, then TV websites would be thriving…and they’re not.”
— Charlotte Grimes, Knight Chair in Political Reporting at the Newhouse School, Syracuse University
