Multimedia Analysis

This Star Tribune article about a home explosion features a video of firefighting units working on the blaze, as well as an interview with an eyewitness, the fire-chief, and a Center Point spokeswoman. Text in the video is limited to bold descriptive section titles. The page also features a photo slide show, with single-sentence cutlines that describe what is happening in the photo. These complement the news story by providing visual context to the article.

WCCO
follows a similar format, with a photo slideshow using one sentence descriptive cutlines as well as an embed of their TV coverage. However, WCCO's main body text is shorter than the Star Tribune's.
