Multimedia Analysis

| No Comments

I decided to take a look at the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal when comparing the use of multimedia options in journalism. What I found was that the two outlets were very similar in their multimedia usage.
The two mainly use video and photo-slideshows. Both outlets use slideshows. The Times more often uses slideshows to stand on their own and be feature pieces related to travel and other frivolous activity. The Journal uses slideshows more in to accompany articles that could require some visual stimulation, such as reviews of products and cultural events.
Both organizations tend to be very traditional and use multimedia sparingly when presenting hard news. They more often present softer news with less serious writing along with the video and slideshow stories.The writing tends to be more anecdotal and is less focused on traditional conveyance of fact or inverted pyramid style.
