News is breaking today about a gunman who killed two people at Virginia Tech's campus.
As an example of how a modern news website combines breaking news, here's Huffington Post's page of coverage on the event.
It has a text story that's been edited throughout the day, links to multiple videos, a live blog, a link to another news source's live news feed, and a Twitter feed.
In such a short time, all this has been added to the story in a practice which is now considered to be standard. Journalism has never been so multimedia-focused.
