I still do not enjoy they layout it picked for their photos that correspond with the article. I am interested in photography and if used properly, photos add a vivd defining key element to enhance a story. This particular publication still struggles deeply with their multimedia. The following photos just list names and it does not provide me with much context as to why I am staring at two scary looking individuals. I wish an editor would have had my same stand and provided us with a better caption.
The overal story itself was intriguing. It is no surprise that it is well written. However, the story is lackluster. I was very intrigued by what had happened in Boston. There was a lot of different elements that made this a very action packed exciting yet horrendous attack. There was so much hype revolving around the bombing and this is the story my publication produces?
I had to stop reading it because I was bored to tears and it gave me a headache.
This story may have been more tolerable if someone on staff of the Herald added a video to accompany the piece or a gallery of intriguing photos. The piece alone with the small side bar of photos is absolutely boring. Journalism this day in age has changed. We can do much more to tell a story effectively and in an interesting manor. I am unsure why my assigned publication cannot grasp that idea and run with it. If they are not ready to run with it, at least try and limp away with multimedia. It is clear to me that this newspaper is far behind the rest, but one day I hope they enter the digital media age.
