For instance, the New York Times has slide shows that incorporate visual images that tell the story a way print could not. MSNBC does the same thing, using images with short news-related captions to tell the story.
The writing that accompanies these slides is usually short and precise. The first sentence usually tells of what the reader is viewing, the second simply adds context and facts to the progressing story.
The New York Times also offers other interactive map and graph multimedia options that allow a reader to get involved in aspects of the story that they otherwise could not.
