Patrick Kavanagh’s Blog The online opportunity to reinvent storytelling

Patrick’s blog deals with the fact that online journalism has presented us with a new medium from which to get our news. He writes that we now have audio and video to play with. This is such an advantage for people who are looking for their information as fast as possible. He says that not only can we get a news story online but we can have video and sound also. This means that people are getting more, faster. It seems that most people nowadays are too busy to pick up a newspaper and this new form of journalism can alleviate any worries about not getting your news in a day. The only thing we might worry about is that people are getting lazy when it comes to finding their news. That many are rejecting the age old tradition of picking up a newspaper and reading it cover to cover. This type of journalism may in fact do away with print altogether, perhaps we will be hearing all of our news from a piece of video in times to come. I’m not sure we  are quite ready for that yet!
