The New York Times has a very “classic” feel to it as one of the oldest newspapers with over 100 Pulitzer Prizes. Even with the integration of present-day multimedia assets like photos and videos, the Times still follows the journalistic integrity in which it was founded, but the number of topics (and the way in which they are covered) has expanded since the Ochs and Sulzberger days.

Obviously, the NYT has accommodated to modern-day digitization through its website and SmartPhone App. This heightens the convenience of reader access. Under the ‘Magazine’ section they have interesting stories which they publish every one to five days (based on recently-published articles). Integrating assets of a magazine into a traditional news publication is far easier when done digitally; this is an advantage of the Times website, or in other words, the digital adaptation.

Looking at the Times’ multimedia coverage really enhances the audible and visual characteristics of different news stories (all categories including sports, politics, opinions, business, and more). The site even has a designated “Video” section. Most news guidelines emphasize “showing” rather than “telling,” which is possible to convey through words; the writer must be very descriptive but also, in some cases, limit the use of adjectives to sustain purely factual reporting. Implementing photos and videos leaves it up to viewers’ senses or their interpretations based on what is taking place in the media assets. In shorter words, it can further clarify the objects, actions, and context of a news story without the writer presenting “opinions” (through the use of adjectives) and making viewers and readers rethink or question the credibility of an author.
