CNN has has long been a trendsetter in video journalism newsgathering and distribution methods.  Yesterday, CNN announced that is would assign journalists to 10 cities across the United States to work in mini-bureaus with not much more than a camera, a laptop and an Internet connection.

Today, Brian Stelter of The New York Times reports on the developments at CNN and other U.S. television news organizations.

In March, I interviewed Jon Klein, president of CNN. He speaks about use of CNN over the years in using innovative news gathering technology, including Skype.  Here at the Purple Channel we are starting to use Skype for some interviews
