Washington Post issues video cameras to reporters

In 1998, reporters at the Washington Post laughed when newly appointed managing editor Steve Coll predicted the reporters would soon be carrying video cameras.

As this article in the Washingtonian indicates, they're not laughing now. The Post has started issuing digital video cameras to reporters in metro bureaus. About a quarter of their international bureau reporters already carry video cameras.

And the MSM takes another step into the 21st century.
