Strike A Different Bargain With Online Video from Mark Briggs’ Journalism 2.0 brings up an interesting view on how video production is changing on online news sites. News sites are much more open to publishing lower quality videos (for example video taken from cell phones) than they would have been even a couple years ago.

Word cloud of the article

Briggs compares video productions from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, both well-known and respectable news sources. The videos produced by the technology columnists are the focus of his comparison. The New York Times produces a high-quality and professional video that also appears on cable television while The Wall Street Journal is produced by only one man who uses a web cam to create the video. Briggs states that both types of video are acceptable in today’s media environment.
