Both the New York Times and the Star Tribune offer a range of multimedia options, including video, slideshows, photos and other graphics.
The New York Times has more original content, most notably in its video options -- it produces its own videos, while the Star Tribune may use videos from aggregators like the Associated Press.
The New York Times story 'In Final Days of the Race, Fighting County by County' includes a slideshow entitled 'On the Campaign Trail.' It shows 11 photos of both presidential candidates and their supporters. Each photo is accompanied by a brief caption.
The story itself is a feature on the final days of the campaign -- where each candidate is traveling, the steps they are taking as the election approaches and where concerns remain for each campaign, respectively. The story also includes an interactive map showing how many electoral votes each candidate has, according to polling data, and which states remain undecided. An additional interactive graphic in this story is a swing state tracker, which allows readers to see which candidate may be ahead in a given swing state and see additional information including numbers of visits by the candidates and their spouses. Short blurbs show what the candidates did in each state.
A Star Tribune "story slideshow" entitled 'Workplace shootings in the U.S.' shows seven photos from workplace shootings in recent years. Each photo is accompanied by the date of the shooting, the location, the shooter, the number of people killed and injured and the shooter's motive.
The Star Tribune slideshow is relatively simple, but it allows readers to see similarities and differences between the shootings and get a sense of the scope of the Accent Signage Systems shooting in September.
