Larry Kramer, the former newspaper editor who started MarketWatch, is one of the most accomplished innovators in online video journalism.

He says that the value of presenting video online is the ability to present "unfiltered" information directly to the consumer.   

He explains that video is not the medium of all news and some video is done really badly, but he nails the underlying value of television journalism and the work we are trying to accomplish here at Beet.TV:  Give folks with something interesting to say a microphone and let them speak. 

Great interview, Larry.  Thank you very much.

Below is a terrific video about evolution of online business media with Larry and the’s Jim Cramer.  The video was presented at a paidContent conference in New York in October.

Larry is on the board of paidContent.
