Video in Journalism / by Denny Henry

We've been talking about video, as it relates to the future of photojournalism, in many of my classes recently. I read an interesting blog entry a little bit ago about the status of still images as compared to video. I think video can be used very effectively in visual story telling, I also think that it has a long way to go. From the recent events at Virginia Tech, a lot of the video I've seen online has been rather weak, and is either modeled after audio slide shows, or cable news. The still images to come out of the same situations has been much more interesting, and used more appropriately.
