But I think the proposal is that there IS a link to the originals.
Even though I'm a photographer for a living, I don't subscribe to the
view that big pictures are better. It's like, if you shout loud, it
doesn't mean what you've got to say is therefore more important.
(Nobody have a cow, this is not directed at any individual).
To me, a picture may be worth a thousand words - but then so are a
hundred better chosen words.
The very best reports are a combination of words and pictures, and
the ability to somehow link these two together would be great.

I reckon we have a good working newswire at the moment that does its
job, could be improved but there's no great urgency. I'd rather wait
and see if we can maybe create a format that helps us get the story
across - physically linking pix and words would be a good step
