So the other day I was looking through the news and noticed something pretty interesting on - they had video set up to play on their home page. I've never seen them do this and I think it was a great way to integrate video into their normal content, which ultimately led to increased traffic.

Unfortunately, they used the video to follow a bunch of pigs that were stranded on the roof of a barn. Don't get me wrong, I love animals just as much as the next fella, but aren't there bigger issues with this flood than a couple of stranded pigs.

This is a perfect example of the news media taking a great idea and screwing it up.
