Both include photos as slideshows one can click through, with one line above the photos giving the theme or event that the photos are based on. On the side are tiny descriptions (cutlines) of each photo.
Both have more photos than anything else, and the videos and audio slideshows are listed to the right of the photo albums. The Washington Post also has an interactive feature just like the one in The Times, with a map that can be clicked on and moved listing events and their dates, on their places on the map. Information is given underneath the photos or videos.
The Post also includes an interactive feature advising on how to buy better groceries, with buttons for all the nutritional information of commonly bought items, a place where you can add food to your cart, and then a list that you can print for yourself to bring to the real grocery store.
The Times has some variants of the click-on map as well. There are features, which are videos that give thorough run-downs of events in the news, shorts, which are videos looking into the matter with more intimate and isolated situations affected by the event, and "moments" that are slideshows. There are numerous topics listed above the area where the media shows, and each topic has information from all of this media. Both of the sites' interactive media are not as obvious as the videos and photos.
