Examples of Flash journalism

[Keyword: ]. Thanks to Poynter for collecting a number of examples of Flash journalism around the story of "the Chilean armed forces' worst peacetime disaster" when "Thirty-five young, inexperienced recruits died after they were sent to the mountain while a fierce snowstorm was beginning."

Many of the examples are in Flash but you still get a good idea:
"The media had to figure out how to show the place, as Emol.com did (Spanish) with a satellite photo, or to explain the local political circumstances, as the New York Times did.

"[T]he medical effects of low temperatures ... are well explained with a Flash animation, where you slide a bar on a thermometer and see what happens to the human body."
