I'm a big fan of the New York Times. It's almost my only source of news- I read it online every day. But I have always had some issues with their audio-slideshows. they started to use reporter narration (which is a shortened version of the print story) of photos as the only audio, and I frankly think that's lazy. And then they tend to assign the interesting, hard news subjects to video or flash graphics while the audio slideshow is relegated to soft, fluffy and fashion- orientated subjects.
