Over the last few days, we’ve gotten a few e-mails from the online video site Newsy. (Hey guys!) Newsy is a pretty interesting news startup which has a partnership with the smart kids at the University of Missouri. (Read up on the school’s journalism program – which, if you ask us, is how J-Schools should work.) In a lot of ways, Newsy is sort of the video version of SFB – it splices together lots of disparate elements to give you a brief, detailed overview of a full story. (They probably have more startup capital than us, but we’ll let that one go. Heh.) In the clip above, they offer tons of new context with the gay Cub Scout leader who was forced to give up his leadership program. The guy at the center of all this knows how to sell popcorn. And he’s thinking of filing a lawsuit against the organization. We learned all that just from watching the video! Newsy’s pretty cool. source
