Wall Street Journal has launched WorldStream, a platform for video news gathering and publishing of short form videos created by the paper's staffers.  The publisher made the announcement today.

Last November spoke with Alan Murray, Deputy Managing Editor of the Wall Street Journal and Executive Editor of the Wall Street Journal Online.  He gives an overview of the growing creation and distribution of the video at the Journal.  We have republished that video today.

News of the video inititative was reported earlier this month by Jim Romenesko.
