If you are one of the countless people who depend on WXXI for your news and analysis, then I have an exciting announcement. WXXI has launched WXXINews.org, a new Web site that makes local news content more accessible for you.
The New Year is a time to make predictions and resolutions, so here’s my first one: I resolve that 2009 will be the year that WXXI makes its greatest strides in becoming the essential media resource for the Greater Rochester area.
We're testing the "news aggregator" feature of the site with our own WXXI News feeds. It's open for anyone to check out, just click the "News aggregator" link under Featured Content on the left-hand side of the page. It contains nearly all articles in our WXXI Public Newsroom in a single reverse-chronological list. Click any story for the full version.
I agree with Bob in saying that if it (TV ads or Website video Blurb) is not captioned it is a slap in our faces. I have been following this problem for several years and I remember those who do caption their TV ads or Website Video Blurb when we go to the voting booths.
What I cannot track is what is broad casted on the radio because they are not captioned, but they do carry (repeat) it on the websites. I wish the radio stations would post the text of what was broad casted. Some do and others do not. Granted this is not the issue with the candidates as much as the Broadcasters. If it were posted in TEXT then I would be able to read what the candidates said over the airwaves. This is also true for the video broadcaster (Local and National News).
