The Los Angeles Times features several stories in picture and video. They allow you to choose a story and scroll through the picture slideshow, often providing video documentation to compliment the photographs. The featured multimedia story is about the World Trade Center. It provides a slide show and a feature article about people linked to Rescue 5 that were impacted by the attacks.
The New York Times offers more variety in terms of interactive media. Not only do they provide audio slide shows and videos, they also include interactive maps and charts to compliment the story.
Most of the multimedia writings provide less text with very brief descriptions, letting the graphics, images or handy mouse roll-overs speak for themselves.
