Im going to look at the multimedia options for the Los Angeles Times and The New Yorker.
In the Los Angeles Times I clicked on something called "the week in pictures." It is just a series of interesting photos with clear concise captions. The captions only describe what is in the pictures and in some cases gives a really brief explanation for why it's happening (for things like protests).
The New Yorker focuses its multimedia on audio. Right now there is an audio only piece that talks about the overall political climate of Russia. There is also an audio slideshow that focuses on the story instead of what you might be seeing at that moment. So the pictures are more of a compliment to the audio.
