I’ve got to agree with Rex on this one, the new design for MSNBC’s story pages isn’t quite there yet — there’s an annoying tool bar on the bottom for start — but it is highly ambitious in a way other news sites aren’t. So let’s highlight the positives, shall we?
Everything is big. The text, pictures, video. Love the one column layout (it’s got to be almost 750 px wide), love the anchor links on the right side of the page (though they could be larger). These are some beefy multi-media packages, which is what ever major news story should have on the web.
