AUSTIN — As video is becoming a central editorial and business focus for news organizations including The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and others, it is not finding favor with "old school" reporters at these organizations who cite it as their chief "complaint,"  says Dylan Byers, media reporter for Politico, in this interview with Beet.TV at SXSW.

At issue is the feeling of that newspapers are becoming too much like television.

In the video, he also speaks about Twitter fame and self-promotion, and the worrying emergence of sponsored content by news organizations.

In unrelated news, today Politico announced the growth of its professional subscription business and print expansion.
