Open Journalism: The Guardian's Viewpoint (A Video)

Those who know me know I have a surface love for technology's effect on the world—how it changes it, how it clutters it, how it enhances it. So, when I came across this video on The Guardian, I had to share. As they explain:
This advert for the Guardian's open journalism, screened for the first time on 29 February 2012, imagines how we might cover the story of the Three Little Pigs in print and online. Follow the story from the paper's front page headline, through a social media discussion and finally to an unexpected conclusion.


What do you think? Can one source actually provide the "whole picture"? Do the different platforms for spreading (and exploring) news advance the truth or inhibit it?
