Random Air Show crash in Poland
US Television News has developed into a, “if it bleeds it leads” operation and Internet News is following suit. The resent mid-air collision of two small vintage airplanes hit the front page of CNN.
Once again it is spectacle vs. story as people search the internet for new video footage of the airplane crash at the air show in Poland.
This new distribution of video has opened up another revenue stream for online video producers and that's being a video news stringer that covers news and sells or licenses content to News services. The other option is creating a news video portal and selling ads in addition to licensing the footage.
