Today's video is a story from the people over at Great Big Story about a bank in Italy that accepts cheese as a form of collateral for a loan. 

If you have been following the video of the day here on TheVJ.com . you'll notice this isn't our first video featured from Great Big Story. We really like their stuff! It is well produced and shot cleanly, but most importantly they consitently get great stories (no pun inteded) and tell them great as well.  Each shot and line of narration sets up a question in the viewer's head that drives the story. You can learn just how they do this in our Storytelling Courses.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
