1. From Steve Rhodes:

Mainstream media still writing concert reviews without embedding videos from said concerts. Why? The sage writing advice of "show, don't tell" should now be "show, and then tell," meaning you can now go further than trying to "dance about architecture" and actually help describe and inform what we're actually seeing for ourselves.

Ditto for record reviews - embed the audio! And for sports stories - show us the highlights!

As for politics, well, the Daily Show showed us all how powerful it can be to simply put politicians' own words side-by-side . . . this is the true pivot-to-video!

2. From Jim Kopeny, Chicagoist Senior Editor, Arts & Entertainment:

We reviewed the show too . . . and we do include embeds of media when appropriate. 😁
