 Study: There’s no such thing as healthy obesity.

This was an interesting article that I found had a good video and written story package. The topic was about a new review of several studies that suggested that being healthy and obese was a myth. The story package contained basic background and how the scientists conducted the experiment. The story gave the reader the overview of the study.

This story also had a video that supplemented the information mentioned in the article. On the CNN broadcast, the reporters interviewed a clinical assistant professor at New York University regarding the new study. This was effective multimedia because CNN was getting an expert’s opinion on the issue.

Over all this was a good story package in my opinion, however there was one thing I wish they had included: Graphics. There are no photographs in this story since obesity and weight loss is a somewhat touchy subject. If the story included graphics reflecting the results of the study or something along those lines the story would be a lot stronger and more visually appealing.
