The affiliations of a newspaper like the USA Today are more contemporary. Although the paper has been criticized for lowering print journalism to the level of television news, visually the USA Today does not draw primarily on television. Its layout resembles a multimedia computer application more than it does a television broadcast; the paper attempts to emulate in print (fig. 1.6) the graphical user interface of a web site (fig. 1.7). For that matter, television news programs also show the influence of the graphical user interface when they divide the screen into two or more frames and place text and numbers over and around the framed video image.
