CBS on the web 

The battery on my Blackberry died so onto the Treo...

Larry Kramer, President of CBS Digital Media chaired a conversation with a couple of London-based correspondents, Richard Roth and Sheila MacVicar.

While they welcomed a place to post the additional stuff that didn't make it onto their two minute slot on the evening news, the need to file more often was seen as conflicting with their ability to research the story and take the time to be able to tell it in the best way. The need to properly fund web news rooms was also raised along with the difference in needs for HDTV for broadcast and webcam quality deemed ok for the web. Personally I don't think that poor quality video will be accepted for long as ok by online consumers.
