I compared the multimedia sections of both The New York Times and Sports Illustrated. Both of these news organizations feature both video and photos for multimedia.
These features compliment news stories by giving readers a direct look at events that enhances the story because by seeing what the author is talking about, readers can better understand stories.
The writing is very short and to the point. It usually is only one or two sentences. It will describe what is going on in the photo and then expand giving you further information.
