Video Commentary: Iran tested new missiles over the weekend

Since we talked about broadcast this week I wanted to take a video portion and write about it in terms of what we learned.

I thought it would be good because I already wrote about Iran testing missiles in the World News category. Here is the link for the video on CNN.


The CNN story is about 1:25 minutes long and the actual footage of the training is only about 10-15 seconds.

The big difference in terms of broadcast is the video and how it's used. For this story the footage of missiles being fired was stunning.

The visual aspect of the story caused a distraction from what the reporter was saying.

The key information in the video was mostly the same in the written story but there were no extra details and no quotes.

The lack of quotes made this story a little shallow but the visuals made it compelling.
