Analysis: Multimedia

The multimedia sections of the New York Times and Star Tribune are different according to the content of their main coverage.

Both venues offer slideshows, videos, audio, podcasts, etc. These features provide the reader and common audience with a visual and oral experience into the news. The ability to tell a story through something other than written words or print helps the newspaper to reach its technology-driven audience.

News stories are broken down and visualized by readers to create a more realistic image in their minds. Understanding is usually clearer about the subject when more outlets are offered on the topic addressed.

These writings include short segments of a news article that sum up what is happening in the pictures of a slideshow and then a lead sentence on the bigger picture and the images to follow. The facts are limited and concise, including only enough information to tell the story. Most background information is left for the newspaper articles.
