This article is a good example of what sets the Internet apart from print when it comes to journalism. The combination of a high resolution image, the text and the audio after the article function perfectly so that the reader can get the most information out of the story. The combination of multimedia in this article also serves the purpose of showing both sides of the argument better than the text does alone.

The use of both text and audio to tell the major story of the article is helpful and efficient.
