As newspapers have expanded video content to their pages, they have begun covering breaking news stories.  It’s interesting to see the work of The New York Times and the Washington Post and differences in style.

Nytjpg_2 The Times has a straightforward news report of the sequence events.  It was reported by Ben Werschkul.

The Washington Post’s Pierre Kattar and his editors take different approach with a very emotional, unedited interview with a witness to the shooting.  Very moving clip. The clip is on the home page of the Washington Post — the screen shot is on the top of this page.

The Wall Street Journal features a Reuters television report on its video page.

In following breaking news, it’s good to see the assets of big media at work.  There have been some misleading and inaccurate news coming out of the blogesphere.
